A unique, commercial data source from LeoLabs. Each radar is built in less than one year.

LeoLabs’ radars track satellites and debris around the clock.

  • They are unaffected by sunlight, clouds, rain, snow, and wind.
  • Each radar tracks thousands of objects per hour — they use phased-array technology to switch from one object to the next every millisecond
  • The Kiwi Space Radar (KSR), and future radars, track debris as small as 2 centimeters using S-band electronics
  • The first two radars use UHF electronics that have been in operation for over 10 years

LeoLabs is building a network of 6+ radars.
This network will:

  • Cover the Southern Hemisphere
  • Cover the Equator (low inclination orbits)
  • Cover the Northern Hemisphere
  • Revisit satellites many times per day
  • Protect satellites from small debris
  • Track newly launched satellites within hours of deployment

LeoLabs has 3 radars in operation today.

Tracking as a Subscription Service

See the data from these radars in action. Building a tracking service used to mean building radars, building software, and staffing. This took decades and billions of dollars. LeoLabs handles all of that. Tracking services are now available in real-time, over the internet, from a network of proven radars.
