Step 5: Install and Configure FE Processor/Radio - AWS Ground Station

Step 5: 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 radio (SDR) installed by default. You need to install an FE processor or SDR 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 SDR depends on which FE processor or SDR you are using. Installation of an FE processor or SDR is beyond the scope of this user guide.

To install and configure FE processor/radio, contact AWS Support.

Important

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