Aurora is a powerful cloud-based mission control software designed to control a single satellite or a complete constellation through a user-friendly, fully customizable control interface.

Always up to date:

 

 

 

Custom User Interface

 

Flexible IT infrastructure:

Scalability: 

Maximum Flexibility:

 

On-Demand Global Coverage

 

 

State-of-the-art security

Low CAPEX:

Aurora’s cloud architecture enables operators to significantly reduce mission costs by eliminating all the expenses connected to software design, development, testing, deployment, and maintenance.

The user interface can be customized to the needs and preferences of individual mission operators.

A web interface enables the use of cheap, commodity hardware to create the desired IT infrastructure. Operators can control satellites from any location through a variety of computer platforms, including mobile.

Aurora can use the elasticity of the Cloud to allow for processing resources to be added as required, allows for different automation strategies to be implemented when controlling satellite fleets or constellations.

Aurora’s software architecture is modular, and it can be tailored to support any spacecraft and any satellite protocol.

A worldwide network of ground stations, in partnership with LeafSpace and Amazon AWS Ground Station, ensures global coverage that can be tailored to the needs and the budget of any space mission.

 

The software is installed in a private cloud instance with AES256 encryption 2FA token user authentication, to ensure state-of-the-art cybersecurity protection.

Through a linear pay-per-use structure, operators don't need to invest in Hardware or expensive Software developments.
