AWS Ground Station has now expanded to the Europe (Stockholm) Region. AWS Ground Station is a fully managed service that lets you control satellite communications, process satellite data, and scale your satellite operations.
AWS Ground Station is expanding to multiple geographic regions to ensure customers are served across the world. The Europe (Stockholm) Ground Station deployment is the northernmost Region launched to date, providing increased capacity and visibilities to polar orbiting satellites.
Customers can easily integrate satellite data with other AWS services, either in the same region or in another AWS Region using Amazon’s global, low-latency, high-bandwidth backbone network. Downlinked data can be streamed to Amazon EC2 for real-time telemetry, tracking, and control, stored in Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3), processed through Amazon Rekognition for imaging analysis, or Amazon SageMaker to apply AI/ML to satellite imagery data.
AWS Ground Station is available today in US-West-2 (Oregon), US-East-2 (Ohio), ME-South-1 (Bahrain), and EU-North-1 (Stockholm) with more regions coming soon. To learn more about AWS Ground Station, visit here. To get started with AWS Ground Station, visit the AWS Management console here.
