SatAAS

Satellites As A Service

API WIP

API exported via gRPC.

service Prediction {
    // Categories returns all known categories with norad numbers
    rpc Categories (google.protobuf.Empty) returns (CategoriesResponse) {}

    // SatsInfos returns norad number and tles for active sats
    rpc SatsInfos (SatsRequest) returns (SatsInfosResponse) {}

    // SatsLocations returns a stream of locations for a list of sats or a category
    rpc SatsLocations (SatsRequest) returns (stream SatsLocationsResponse) {}

    // SatLocationFromObs returns a stream of observations from a location for a list of sats or a category
    rpc SatLocationFromObs (SatLocationFromObsRequest) returns (stream Observation) {}

    // GenLocations returns the predicted locations for a list of sats or a category
    rpc GenLocations(GenLocationsRequest) returns (GenLocationsResponse) {}

    // GenPasses returns the predicted passes for a sat
    rpc GenPasses(GenPassesRequest) returns (Passes) {}
}

Example

Start the server

make sataas && ./cmd/sataas/sataas

Tech

cppsgp4 is swig wrapped from the sgp4 c++ library.
sgp4 is a wrapper to handle c++ exceptions into Go errors, and a Goish API.

The gRPC is exposed as pure gRPC and as grpc-web on the same port.

Update bindings

swig -c++ -intgosize 64 -go SGP4.i
