Quindar and ATLAS Space Operations Partner for a Turnkey Ground Segment
Today, Quindar is proud to announce our partnership with ATLAS Space Operations. The integration of Quindar Mission Planning and the ATLAS Freedom™ Platform allows our customers to skip the network and API integration and immediately reserve and simulate satellite contacts with the ATLAS network. Typical customers can save months in development and integration time through this turnkey solution. Within Quindar, customers can set the number of contacts, minimum contact time, maximum time between contacts and Quindar Mission Planning will automatically maintain that capacity while allowing customers to select specific additional passes.
