A new Cosmic Ray DataBase (CRDB) is under development at the ASI Science Data Center, a facility of the Italian Space Agency (ASI) that provides support to several space missions and acts as a multi-mission science operation, data processing and data archiving center. To ensure a more extensive utilisation of space data from existing, archived and future missions, on-line access to archival data, analysis software, calibration files and documentation are provided by a MultiMission Interactive Archive (MMIA) of the ASI Science Data Center. Space data from different missions and in different fields of research (astro-physics,astro-particle, cosmology,planetology) are connected in the MMIA in order to stimulate their cross-analysis and comparison. In this context, the CRDB aims to provide the scientific community with tools for an easy and efficient access to published data from missions dedicated to charged Cosmic Rays measurements. Originally developed to support the retrieval of PAMELA and AMS-02 results, it is now expanding to include more data sets from other experiments and evolving to provide new tools for data retrieval, visualisation and download. As an example, measurements of differential energy fluxes and flux ratios for the different species are available as a function of various parameters (e.g. energy, rigidity, time, magnetic parameters), for particles of galactic and solar origin, as well as particles trapped in the Earth magnetosphere. Data are ready for retrieval, visualisation and download. In this contribution, we will introduce the main features of the CRDB, accessible online at http://tools.asdc.asi.it/CosmicRays/, and the perspectives for its future development.
