AWS Ground Station is a fully managed service that provides you global access to your space workloads. AWS Ground Station enables you to downlink data and provide satellite commands across multiple regions quickly, easily, and cost-effectively without having to worry about building or managing their own ground station infrastructure. AWS Ground Station is available today in six AWS Regions around the world. To see a list of supported regions, please visit the Global Infrastructure Region Table webpage.

The recency of data is particularly critical when it comes to tracking and acting upon fast-moving conditions on Earth. This timeliness depends on frequent communications between ground stations and satellites, which can only be achieved with a large, global footprint of antennas maintaining frequent contact with orbiting satellites. The AWS Ground Station deployment in Ireland provides a second region in Europe to communicate with your satellite. Stockholm is the other AWS Region in the EU that offers AWS Ground Station.  

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, flow data through Amazon Rekognition for imaging analysis, or apply AI/ML algorithms to satellite images with Amazon SageMaker.
