Satellite Ground Segment: Moving to the Cloud
In this report from Northern Sky Research (NSR) on cloud computing in the satellite world, AWS Ground Station is named as one of the solutions available to satellite operators looking to run a fully managed cloud-based ground station service. The report highlights the measurability and flexibility that cloud-based solutions provide to the traditionally CAPEX-heavy investments of satellite ground infrastructure. AWS is touted as offering flexible per-minute access to antennas for self-service scheduling, alleviating the need to buy, lease, build or manage a fully owned ground segment.
According to NSR, “The direct access to AWS services such as EC2, S3, Sagemaker etc. will enable quicker and cost-effective data processing and analysis before integration into key applications."
