Rick Ambrose, head of space business at Lockheed Martin, has said the company's partnership with Amazon Web Services aims to make access to satellite-based data less expensive for firms and other stakeholders, the Washington Post reported Friday.

“If you look at the challenges people have with putting up satellites, it's very cost-prohibitive to put ground networks in,“ Ambrose said.

“We think this is a support that significantly lowers those entry costs for folks, especially if you're a start-up company or university.“

Lockheed agreed to integrate its Verge antenna network with the AWS Ground Station to help users accelerate satellite data processing and analysis under a multiyear agreement.

“It's only today with the power of cloud computing can we pull off the processing speeds to do this,“ Ambrose added.
