Amazon Web Services (AWS) announces expansion of AWS Ground Station to the US East (N. Virginia) and EU (Frankfurt) regions. In these new regions, customers can schedule contacts, and perform command and control of their satellites on orbit.

AWS Ground Station is a fully managed service that lets you control satellite communications, process satellite data, and scale your satellite operations. Customers can easily integrate their space workloads with other AWS services in real-time using Amazon’s low-latency, high-bandwidth global network. Customers can stream their satellite data to Amazon EC2 for real-time processing, store data in Amazon S3 for low cost archiving, or apply AI/ML algorithms to satellite images with Amazon SageMaker. With AWS Ground Station, you pay only for the actual antenna time that you use.

AWS Ground Station is now available in the US West (Oregon), US East (Ohio), Middle East (Bahrain), EU (Stockholm), Asia Pacific (Sydney), EU (Ireland), Africa (Cape Town), US East (N. Virginia), and EU (Frankfurt) regions and the antenna location in Hawaii, US. More regions and antenna locations coming soon!
