Mission Profiles - AWS Ground Station

Mission Profiles

Mission profiles contain configs and parameters for how contacts are executed. When you reserve a contact or search for available contacts, you supply the mission profile that you intend to use. Mission profiles bring all of your configs together and define how the antenna will be configured and where data will go during your contact.

Aside from tracking configs, all configs are contained in the dataflowEdges field of the mission profile. A single dataflow edge is a list of two ARNs—the first is the from config and the second is the to config. By specifying a dataflow edge between two configs, you are telling AWS Ground Station from where and to where data should flow during a contact. Tracking configs are not used as part of a dataflow edge, but are specified as a separate field.

The name field of the mission profile helps distinguish between the mission profiles that you create.

See the following documentation for more information about how to perform operations on mission profiles using AWS CloudFormation, the AWS Command Line Interface, or the AWS Ground Station API.
