Amazon Web Services (AWS) has announced the expansion of AWS Ground Station to the AWS Middle East (Bahrain) region. AWS Ground Station is a fully managed service that lets you control satellite communications, process satellite data, and scale your satellite operations.

With the AWS Middle East (Bahrain) Ground Station deployment, budding startup communities and enterprises in the region can communicate with their satellites and run workloads in the Middle East to serve end users across the region. This will help businesses and organizations throughout the Middle East speed up their digital transformation and innovate even more rapidly.

The new AWS Middle East (Bahrain) Ground Station will bring opportunities for entrepreneurs leading start-ups to experiment, iterate, and fail fast as they develop new products and services. Customers can easily integrate satellite data with other AWS services, either in the same region or in another AWS Region using Amazon’s international, high-capacity backbone network.

AWS Ground Station is available today in US-West-2 (Oregon), US-East-2 (Ohio), and ME-south-1 (Bahrain), with more regions coming soon.
