Sidus Space selects Amazon Web Services (AWS) for LizzieSat™ Constellation
Sidus Space, Inc., a Space-as-a-Service satellite company focused on commercial satellite design, manufacture, launch, and data collection is pleased to announce its selection of Amazon Web Services, Inc (AWS) to provide cloud storage of mission-critical Satellite-as-a-Service operation and customer data for the upcoming LizzieSat™ Constellation.
The primary mission of LizzieSat is to enhance the collection and intelligent analysis of customers’ space-born data returning richer, more precise data down to Earth in less time. By leveraging AWS-managed services like Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2), Amazon Elastic Container Service (Amazon ECS), and Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3), Sidus Space aims to provide reliable, global mission control operations to its customers.
AWS provides robust, secure, and near real-time data access that enables Sidus to more rapidly and efficiently manage the large volumes of mission data produced by its constellation of satellites and enhance customer data with on-platform analytics and secure access points via infrastructure as a service (IaaS) customization. AWS seamlessly aligns with KSAT, Sidus Space’s ground station provider, and provides a cost-effective solution to enhance Sidus Space’s Space-as-a-Service data offerings for its diverse customer base.
John Curry, Chief Mission Operations Officer at Sidus Space, said, “After careful evaluation, we selected AWS because the company provides a superior solution to meet our technical needs. AWS allows us to more reliably operate a secure Mission Control Center anywhere and anytime due to its extensive private network capabilities. AWS technology removes infrastructure restraints and brings simplified, secure access to critical information to ensure mission success. We are very pleased to be working with AWS!”
