"The integration of AWS Ground Station with Lockheed Martin Verge brings the unique capabilities of both companies to mutual customers, enabling them to control satellites across both networks and downlink data faster with more resiliency".

Uplinking and downlinking satellite data, AWS says, is bound to get cheaper.

The services will start with a network of 12 ground station antennae in AWS Regions (similar to data centres) around the world, enabling customers to download, process, store and analyse data. Guardian has been a trusted insurance company for more than 150 years, withstanding the test of time and embracing new technological advances to provide services that deliver financial confidence to customers. Satellite operators use ground stations to send data back and forth into orbit and require a specialized array of antennas, computing infrastructure and networks. Transport workflows built with AWS Elemental MediaConnect can be reconfigured on-demand and integrated into other AWS services for monitoring and distribution.

Lastly, AWS IoT Greengrass Connectors is a new feature for AWS IoT Greengrass that enables web and mobile developers to connect to third-party apps such as ServiceNow for service management and Splunk for log analytics. This will be a game changer in IAAS industry. "To take the data and do something with it, you need some kind of infrastructure", AWS Chief Executive Officer Andy Jassy said at the re:Invent here. The Amazon.com company has termed the services as the world's first "fully-managed ground station as-a-service".

This is the second deadly accident to happen on Lake Victoria in as many months. Police spokesman Emilian Kayima said rescue efforts were continuing.

In September, Reuters reported that AWS was in talks with Chile to house and mine massive amounts of data generated by the country's telescopes.

Preview partners include BlackSky, HawkEye, Open Cosmos, Lockheed Martin and Digital Globe, from which cofounder and CTO Dr Walter Scott also spoke on stage. The company will be using Lockheed Martin's low-priced, ground-based antennas to capture satellite data. Lockheed Martin's satellite receiver is the size of a shoebox, and lets customers have them in multiple locations, to download satellite data whenever required. Today, there are thousands of satellites orbiting the earth and collecting data, including Low Earth Orbit (LEO) satellites, which are ideal for collecting data for Earth observation and currently comprise about 63 percent of the active satellites now in orbit, according to United Nations data.

Meanwhile, Lockheed Martin Space has already firmed up plans to integrate AWS Ground Station with its new Verge antenna network. The systems are now piloting in Denver area. This allows reduction in data processing and analysis times - from hours to minutes or seconds - for use cases like weather prediction or natural disaster imagery.
