Unibap collaborates with Amazon Web Services
Unibap’s SpaceCloud™ Services framework, co-funded by ESA’s InCubed programme, has become a member of the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Partner Network and will begin integration with AWS. Together, Unibap and AWS will improve satellite data efficiency for aerospace and satellite customers.
On 15 December 2020, Swedish company Unibap announced its membership with the AWS Partner Network and phased integration with AWS during 2021. As well as providing aerospace and satellite customers with real-time access to AWS, this integration will simplify data management with lower latencies and reduced costs.
ESA has been co-funding Unibap’s SpaceCloud™ Services framework since it was selected under the InCubed programme for enhanced software functionality and standardisation in April 2020. Unibap’s collaboration with AWS will allow customers to quickly collect and immediately analyse data instead of relying on traditional storage and processing methods which can take up to 24 hours.
In Unibap’s press release, CEO Dr. Fredrik Bruhn says: “The timing of our collaboration to bring full cloud experience to space is perfect and is the culmination of many years of in-house development and continuous support from the Swedish National Space Agency and the European Space Agency. I am extremely pleased to be taking the next step of cloud computing to space with AWS and foresee enablement of new business models and space mission architectures that benefits commercial and government endeavors”.
