    Satellite Firms Moving Ahead on Orbital Database
    By Peter B. de Selding
        PARIS - Three of the world's largest commercial satellite operators
        have issued a request for proposals for a company to design and operate
        a database on satellite positions, planned maneuvers and signal
        transmissions with a view to reducing the chance of orbital collisions
        and frequency interference.
        The three companies - Intelsat, SES and Inmarsat - expect to select a
        contractor as early as December to create the Space Data Center, to be
        located at the newly established Space Data Association (SDA) in
        Britain's Isle of Man.
