There have been a lot of exciting innovations in space from multi-orbit satellites, mega constellations to software-defined payloads. Today on Constellations, we discuss how this space innovation is driving the ground system to become much more dynamic. According to Northern Sky Research “ground network technology must shift from purpose-built, proprietary hardware architectures to software-defined, flexible, and extensible virtual platforms.” Addressing this challenge, Kratos has developed the first fully digital, virtualized, software-defined and orchestrated platform in the satellite industry named OpenSpace. OpenSpace enables a more dynamic environment by automating and scaling ground station operations to support multi-satellite and multi-orbit operations. With us today to discuss the way forward to a more dynamic ground system with OpenSpace is Greg Quiggle, Vice President of Product Management for Kratos.
