With the advancement of various technologies, the research and application of space object optical characteristic (SOOC), one of the main characteristics of space objects, are faced with new challenges. Current diverse structures of massive SOOC data cannot be stored and retrieved effectively. Moreover, SOOC processing and application platforms are inconvenient to build and deploy, while researchers’ innovative algorithms cannot be applied effectively, thereby limiting the promotion of the research achievements. To provide a scaffolding platform for users with different needs, this paper proposes SOOCP, a SOOC data and analysis service platform based on microservice architecture. Using the hybrid Structured Query Language (SQL)/NoSQL service, the platform provides efficient data storage and retrieval services for users at different levels. For promoting research achievements and reusing existing online services, the proposed heterogeneous function integration service assists researchers and developers in independently integrating algorithmic modules, functional modules, and existing online services to meet high concurrency requests with a unified interface. To evaluate the platform, three research cases with different requirement levels were considered. The results showed that SOOCP performs well by providing various data and function integration services for different levels of demand. View Full-Text
