Step 4: Install and Configure FE Processor/Radio

The Amazon EC2 instance defined in the AWS CloudFormation template does not have a Front End (FE) processor or software defined modem (SDM) installed by default. You need to install an FE processor or SDM in order to process the VITA-49 packets streamed to/from the AWS Ground Station antenna system.

How you install and configure your FE processor or SDM depends on which FE processor or SDM you are using. Installation of an FE processor or SDM is beyond the scope of this user guide.

Important

It's a best practice to run your FE processor or SDM on the instances created by the AWS CloudFormation template to ensure the benefits of the DTLS data streams to/from Data Defender.
