RBC Signal is collaborating with Amazon Web Services (AWS) Ground Station to provide satellite operators access to AWS Ground Station. Combining the reach of the worldwide RBC communication network with high-throughput AWS Ground Station antennas aims to 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 supports satellites in Geostationary Orbit (GEO), Medium Earth Orbit (MEO), and Low Earth Orbit (LEO), meeting a wide array of mission needs.

“This is an important collaboration for us as it augments our global network with low-latency access to AWS services and AWS Ground Station’s cloud computing infrastructure,” said Christopher Richins, CEO of RBC Signals. “We are pleased to participate in this exciting new AWS Ground Station offering.”
