Leave more time and resources for the most important part of the mission - its key objective. Focus on your goal! Whether it is remote sensing, telecommunication, technology, science experiment or something else - MCS has merely an enabler role to play.
Instead of being the core part of the mission, cloud based MCS can be used as a supportive service. Modern technology makes wonders - things we didn't expect few years ago are now part of everyday life. Looking at your satellite telemetry from mobile device from anywhere at any time - is it really too much to ask?
You are not alone. We are here to assist you. Our technical support is happy to help you with MCS setup and everyday issues. Don't know where to start? You have brilliant idea for the feature which will make your life easier? Found an issue in the system? Don't hesitate to contact us!
Usually operator has to make substantial investment into the hardware. Servers, workstations, radio devices, antennas etc. We are going to change it! By providing cloud based service, responsive user interface and access to ground station networks it's only matter of having notebook, smartphone or tablet in hand.
Developing MCS in house is considerable effort. It requires great deal of knowledge, know-how, time and funds. To build a working mission control system can sometimes be as time consuming as building a small satellite. Instead of employing software development team you could use a service based solution.
MCS requires servers. Usually more than a few. Servers require maintenance just like software running on them. By shifting this responsibility to service provider you could save countless hours needed for environment maintenance. New features and updates are part of the MCS service. Again something you have to consider while managing a running system yourself.
Pay for what you use. This will be much more flexible than big upfront investment. Once your mission is over you don't need to worry about system decommissioning. Service provider has ability to recycle free resources effectively. Sustainability is important - we think a lot about the future.
We don't believe one size fits all philosophy. In case our out of the box functionality is not meeting your expectations we are happy to discuss solutions with you. We are always ready to listen to our customer and to learn more about different use cases. We believe in value from collaboration.
Clear and concise user interface to keep you informed and provide immediate feedback is something we are expecting from cloud services today. Whether it's communication, media streaming, file hosting or something else. MCS is not an exception here. Responsive user interface and excellent user experience are high priority targets in our agenda.
