Amazon Web Services (AWS) announces expansion of AWS Ground Station to the Asia Pacific (Singapore) Region. This is the 11th AWS Ground Station antenna location connected to the AWS Global Network. AWS Ground Station is a fully managed service that lets customers control satellite communications, process satellite data, and scale satellite operations. Global expansion to Singapore enables increased opportunities for satellite operators to connect with their satellites and process their space workloads. An additional mid-latitude AWS Ground Station antenna location reduces the time between contacts for Low-Earth Orbit (LEO) satellites and offers increased utility for customers whose operations require payload downlink. Governments, businesses, and universities can benefit from more timely satellite data to make precise, data-driven decisions.
With AWS Ground Station, you pay only for the antenna time that you use. Cross-region data delivery is included in our pricing, enabling customers to either stream satellite data from any of our antennas to Amazon EC2 for real-time processing or instead directly store data in Amazon S3. Additionally, customers can easily integrate their space workloads with other AWS services in near real-time using Amazon’s low-latency, high-bandwidth global network. For example, customers who downlink terabytes of data daily can easily access AWS services such as Amazon SageMaker to quickly derive useful information.
Customers can transmit and receive data using AWS Ground Station antennas in the following locations: US (Oregon), US (Ohio), Middle East (Bahrain), Europe (Stockholm), Asia Pacific (Sydney), Europe (Ireland), Africa (Cape Town), US (Hawaii), Asia Pacific (Seoul), South America (Punta Arenas), and Asia Pacific (Singapore). Customers can deliver data and configure their contacts with the AWS Ground Station console in the following regions: US East (Ohio), US East (N. Virginia), US West (Oregon), Africa (Cape Town), Asia Pacific (Sydney), Asia Pacific (Seoul), Asia Pacific (Singapore), Europe (Stockholm), Europe (Ireland), Europe (Frankfurt), Middle East (Bahrain), and South America (São Paulo).
