An object represents a satellite in orbit.

Objects have the following properties:

  • A human-readable name.
  • (optional) NORAD ID, for cross-referencing with other catalogs.
  • Maneuverability status (true or false)
  • Hard-body radius, measured in meters, used for calculating probability of collision.

Operators authenticated with a key with the object:manage permission can use the POST /api/v1/object and PUT /api/v1/object endpoints to create new objects associated with their account, or update the properties of their existing objects respectively.
