The recency of data is particularly critical when it comes to tracking and acting upon fast-moving conditions on the ground. Jassy said users of the Ground Station, however, stand to save up to 80 percent of the cost of building and maintain ground stations. This is just the beginning of our journey, and we're eager to innovate using AWS in ways that were not possible with our on-premises infrastructure.

Speaking more generally about how the vendor chose to wade into the blockchain space Jassy explained during his re:Invent keynote that: "We hadn't seen many examples in production or that couldn't be solved by a database". But now it's an expensive process not only to build ground stations with arrays of antennas but also to organize and process the streams of data being collected. This enables customers to review confirmed times in the console and cancel or reschedule prior to the scheduled contact time.
