AWS is kicking off with a pair of ground stations and says it will have a total of a dozen up and running by the middle of next year.

Prior to this service, companies had to build these base stations themselves to get the data down from the satellites as they passed over the base stations on earth wherever those base stations happened to be. "Today, we are giving satellite customers the ability to dynamically scale their ground station antenna use based on actual need".

With this new service, AWS will provide ground antennas through their existing network of worldwide availability zones, as well as data processing services to simplify the entire data retrieval and processing process for satellite companies, or for others who consume the satellite data.

Additionally, the Blockchain Express is a five- to six-week cross-industry offering that will provide AWS' clients access to Accenture's specialists and range of services from which they can drive value from the distributed ledger technology within the enterprise.

To change that dynamic, Amazon is building a dozen space-trained ground stations all over the world next to its AWS regions-often on the same grounds.

Amazon's facilities will be built on the infrastructure from dozens of AWS data centers located around the world, according to Platzer.

Amazon Web Services (AWS) has announced that its AWS RoboMaker service has been made available for use by developers.

The solution is a set of low cost ground and network antennas capturing multiple streams of satellite data and sending it to the AWS cloud.

With this ability, developers can easily add more features like location-based services, replenishment, industrial data processing, alarm and messaging, fix and maintenance, logistics, and more, without writing code, AWS said. "And, they will be able to ingest data straight into AWS, where they can securely store, analyze, and transmit products to their customers".

Customers and partners now previewing the AWS Ground Station are Lockheed Martin, Digital Globe, HawkEye, Advanced Space, Open Cosmos, Black Sky, Capella Space and others. "In time, with satellites built to take full advantage of the distributed Verge network, AWS and Lockheed Martin expect to see customers develop surprising new capabilities using the service".

"With this new system, the image will be crystal clear and this will be crucial for application in autonomous vehicles", Scott said.

One of the use cases highlighted for the new satellite service was for when natural disasters strike. This access would be available even during unplanned outages such as a weather event, the companies said.

AWS also announced a strategic collaboration with Lockheed Martin to integrate the new AWS Ground Station service with the global security and aerospace giant's new "Verge" antenna network.
