Space and the Cloud

May 20, 2021, 10:00 - 11:00 am EDT

Speaker: Clint Crosier, Director, AWS Aerospace and Satellite

The space industry is rapidly changing with new technology and processes to expand beyond traditional markets. Adopting cloud services for many of its activities brings multiple benefits that can help businesses transform and add value all along the value chain.

By shifting CAPEX to OPEX, space and ground segment users can incorporate the cloud to overcome challenges with data computing and processing, enable business agility, and connect hardware and software in more integrated ways than ever before.

Yet challenges such as outdated processes, safety and risk perception, and market readiness are still prevalent, leading to many questions on this emerging opportunity and how it can help capture greater revenues.

This webinar will answer the following critical questions:

  • What are the main applications for space and the cloud?
  • What are the key challenges for cloud implementation and usage in space and satellite?
  • How does supply and demand look for cloud-based services and applications?
  • Which customers are early adopters of cloud in the space business?
  • When will cloud become a standard offering?

Cloud-Enabled Satellite Solutions

June 23, 2021, 10:00 - 11:00 am EDT

Speaker: Phil Cooper, Manager, AWS Satellite Solutions

The earliest adopters of satellite cloud-enabled solutions range from ground network operators to geospatial solutions providers to various mobility satcom suppliers and Earth Observation satellite operators and distributors.

Customers in verticals such as Maritime, In-Flight Connectivity, Energy, Land-Mobile, and Enterprise VSAT are prime example of how, through partnerships, satellite solutions providers and operators can derive more revenue through adoption of cloud, notably for analytics and connectivity at the edge.

This webinar will answer the following critical questions:

  • What satellite solutions are best suited for the cloud?
  • What are key challenges for implementation and usage of the cloud for satellite solutions?
  • Are there mature markets for cloud-based satellite solutions?
  • How does supply and demand look for applications using satellite cloud solutions?
  • Which customers are the early adopters of satellite solutions via the cloud?

Cloud-Enabled Space Exploration

July 1, 2021, 10:00 - 11:00 am EDT

Speaker: Rob Ruyak, Sr. Manager, AWS Space Solutions​

The surge in space exploration interest and activities is setting objectives that drive a fast expansion of computing and processing for many elements of this exciting endeavor.

From launchers and space habits to probes and orbiters, demand for the cloud to meet space exploration mission success is still in its early stages. But it is seeing growth in demand as data security, constrained available power and storage and edge compute all combine to offer a strong potential for cloud-enabled space exploration.

This webinar will answer the following critical questions:

  • What are the main applications for space exploration and the cloud?
  • What are the key challenges for cloud-enabled space exploration?
  • How does supply and demand look for cloud services for exploration of space?
  • Which customers are early adopters of cloud in space exploration?
  • When will cloud become a standard offering for space exploration?
