It's an interesting proposal, built on the same premise as data centre rental: nobody wants to commit $millions to building ground station(s) only to discover their relatively cheap space segment / Cubesat (< $200k launched cost) is a hunk of junk.. or that great idea doesn't actually work out.
For an alternative, open source approach, you might like to know about satnogs.org/, who collect satellite transmissions from volunteer organisations and individuals all across the globe and publish through an API. Then there are team-specific data collectors such as AMSAT-UKs data warehouse: data.amsat-uk.org/missions :)
We're a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
