Using Cross-Region Data Delivery Service - AWS Ground Station

Using Cross-Region Data Delivery Service

The AWS Ground Station cross-region data delivery feature gives you the flexibility to send your data from an antenna to an Amazon EC2 instance in your AWS Region. Cross-region data delivery service is currently available in the following antenna-to-destination regions:

  • US East (Ohio) Region (us-east-2) to US West (Oregon) Region (us-west-2)

  • US West (Oregon) Region (us-west-2) to US East (Ohio) Region (us-east-2)

To use cross-region data delivery, you should have an AWS CloudFormation template configured. For more information about choosing and customizing AWS CloudFormation templates, see Step 3: Choose and Customize an AWS Cloud Formation Template.

Use the following topics to use cross-region data delivery in AWS Ground Station.

To use cross-region data delivery in the console

When you reserve a contact in the AWS Ground Station console, choose the mission profile that is configured to deliver the contact data to your desired region. Ensure that all of your parameters are correct and choose Reserve contact. If you do not see the desired mission profile in the console, check to make sure you created the mission profile in the region where you are viewing the console.

After reserving your contact, you can view scheduled contacts to verify that you have scheduled cross-region data delivery by viewing the location of the ground station antenna and the destination region. The following image shows a contact that is scheduled for cross-region data delivery. The contact is configured to use the Ohio ground station antennas and deliver data to Oregon.

To use cross-region data delivery with AWS CLI

When you reserve a contact in AWS CLI, choose the mission profile that is configured to deliver the contact data to your desired region. Specify the desired mission profile’s ARN with --mission-profile-arn <value>. Ensure that all of your parameters are correct and run the command. If you do not see the desired mission profile ARN when viewing and listing contacts, check to make sure you created the mission profile in the region where you are running AWS CLI.

After reserving your contact, you can view scheduled contacts to verify that you have scheduled cross-region data delivery by viewing the location of the ground station antenna and the destination region. The following output shows a contact that is scheduled for cross-region data delivery. The contact is configured to use the Ohio ground station antennas and deliver the data to Oregon.
