    This chapter focuses on the applicability of spectrum databases in coexisting satellite and terrestrial systems. The work reviews firstly developments for TV white space operation in the VHF and UHF bands and then discusses their application taking into account inherent satellite system characteristics such as large coverage and long delays. Subsequently, a number of use cases are presented where the satellite system can be either an incumbent or a cognitive user and the implications on the spectrum database implementation are discussed. Finally, emerging spectrum management techniques for satellite bands are discussed.
