Sidus Space expands global ground site network with new Atlas Space Operations contract

Sidus Space, a Space and Defense-as-a-Service satellite company focused on mission-critical hardware manufacturing; multi-disciplinary engineering services; satellite design, production, launch planning, mission operations; and in-orbit support has selected ATLAS Space Operations (ATLAS) to expand ground station services. The agreement is set to significantly increase the global network of ground stations for the LizzieSat™ constellation and further solidify Sidus Space's position as a leader in Space and Defense-as-a-Service solutions.

ATLAS Space Operations provides Ground Software as a Service™ (GSaaS) to manage satellite communications through a global antenna network. ATLAS utilizes Freedom™ Software along with their global federated antenna network, to provide end-to-end monitoring of all assets.

"This partnership with ATLAS represents yet another step forward for Sidus in providing additional cutting-edge satellite support to customers around the world, increasing our coverage and data speed while limiting our capital commitment," said Carol Craig Founder and CEO of Sidus Space. "We are excited to work together with their team of experts to nearly double our daily coverage capabilities."

The increased daily coverage is expected to reduce latency between image collection and downlink, enabling critical data transfer more quickly than ever before. Sidus' expansion into an even larger global ground site network ensures they continue providing exceptional space services while maintaining their position at the forefront of innovative space technology solutions.
