Secure Space Access Anytime, Anywhere

About Us

ATLAS Space Operations has changed how the entire space industry views space-based communications and data. ATLAS’ approach is to abstract the ground segment from the client with software and virtualize underlying components. Through its proprietary Freedom Ground Software as a Service and America’s largest federated ground network, ATLAS provides resilient capabilities that deliver dependable low-latency data.

ATLAS Space Operations created America’s largest federated network by integrating three American companies - ATLAS, Amazon Web Services Ground Station, and Viasat Real-Time Earth to support communication with earth orbiting satellites. ATLAS has commercialized the technology to connect disparate ground systems, thus improving efficiency and providing the security the government requires, while also reducing the need for additional manpower. Freedom Ground Software as a Service is designed to maximize machine-to-machine interfaces making full use of modern computing capabilities for service automation to simplify operations, so satellite operators do not need to be ground station operators. Our 24/7 hardware-agnostic scalable services provide a long-term, resilient architecture. All features can be extended to other systems whether it is a single antenna, a network, or a complex mesh network of disparate systems.

ATLAS also sponsors the ATLAS Space Explorers Post 2025.  An affiliate program of the Boy Scouts of America, the ATLAS Space Explorers is for teens and young adults, ages 12 to 19, who have an interest in learning more about careers in space technology. Youth leaders, under the guidance of adult advisors, run the program, which models a high tech start up.
