Collaboration Begins ... RBC Signals and Amazon Web Services Ground Station

RBC Signals is now collaborating with Amazon Web Services (AWS) Ground Station to provide satellite operators access to AWS Ground Station.

Combining the worldwide RBC communication network with high-throughput AWS Ground Station antennas will make it faster and easier for RBC customers to downlink their satellite data and provide low-latency, local access to other AWS services for data processing, storing, and analysis.

RBC Signals will provide their satellite operator customers seeking expanded global space communication solutions with access to AWS Ground Station services. RBC Signals will also provide ongoing feedback to AWS as it matures and refines its APIs and service platform. 

RBC Signals’ rapidly expanding network now includes more than 65 antennas in over 40 locations across the globe. The firm’s communication capabilities span VHF, UHF, S-, C-, X-, Ku- and Ka-bands. RBC Signals support satellites in GEO, MEO, and LEO, meeting a wide array of mission needs.

Christopher Richins, CEO of RBC Signals, said this is an important collaboration for the company as it augments the firm's global network with low-latency access to AWS services and AWS Ground Station’s cloud computing infrastructure.
