TC satellite operations firm announces support for AWS Ground Station

TRAVERSE CITY–Atlas Space Operations, a provider of ground communications in the space industry and a member of the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Partner Network (APN), announced support for AWS Ground Station within the Atlas Space Operations Freedom Network.

The collaboration provides customers an expanded network of satellite ground stations, simplified satellite management, and easy access to other AWS services for data processing, storage, and analysis.

“Atlas’ status as a member of the AWS Partner Network stems from our shared value of customer prioritization,” said Sean McDaniel, CEO and co-founder of Atlas. “Atlas is working with AWS to simplify communications for satellite operators, and I think our customers are going to love leveraging AWS Ground Station from our network.”

As a member of the APN, Atlas continues to simplify complex tasks by using value-added AWS services and features that satellite operators need to facilitate a mission. Whether conducting scientific research or operating a constellation of satellites imaging the Earth, Atlas gives customers the Freedom system to focus on the mission. Atlas provides access to AWS services within the Freedom Platform, allowing satellite operators to access a fully managed ground network for satellite communications, as well as data processing and distribution. Among the many value-added AWS services and features that can be accessed are Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) for optimizing network scheduling and load balancing; Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) for cloud storage, recording satellite passes, and operations metadata; Amazon CloudWatch for network monitoring and application level system monitoring; and AWS Site-to-Site VPN for secure ground site/cloud connection.
