SpaceTrack - Perl application to fetch satellite orbit data.
This application provides a command-line interface to the
Astro::SpaceTrack module, based on the Astro::SpaceTrack::shell
This gives you interactive access to all Astro::SpaceTrack methods,
plus pseudo output redirection (with tilde expansion) if you want your
output to go to a file.
Commands can be passed in on the command line. After all command-line
commands have been processed, you get an interactive prompt unless one
of the command-line commands was 'exit'. Beginning with 0.014, commands
can also be piped in, or redirected in from a file.
The one and only option is -filter, which sets the 'filter' attribute
of the "Astro::SpaceTrack" object. This prevents informational output
(such as the banner and 'OK' messages) to STDOUT. The idea is that with
-filter asserted, you can pipe the output to another program, and only
have orbital elements written to the pipe.
Please see Astro::SpaceTrack for the details.

and the staff of <http://www.space-track.org/> (whose names are
unfortunately unknown to me) for their co-operation, assistance and
encouragement in the development of the Astro::SpaceTrack module.
