The Importance of a Great User Interface (UI)
A great user interface (UI) impacts many of your daily activities whether you realize it or not.
At ATLAS Space Operations, we spent time focusing on the machine-to-machine interface knowing that, some day, we would focus on a new user interface. However, we’ve always felt it’s not enough to simply have a UI. Rather, the UI must offer features that haven’t been seen before, but are essential to successful satellite operations. Task Insights and Free Time are key to that effort.
Putting the SaaS in GSaaS
If you are a spacecraft operator, it’s important to understand precisely what you are getting when you are selecting a ground station provider. Today, most antenna providers have adopted the term Ground Station as a Service as a way to describe themselves in the marketplace.
When we first started ATLAS Space Operations in 2015, the term Ground Station as a Service wasn’t very well defined and, frankly, didn’t exist. We had the vision to offer the first “service” model for ground stations and, to this day, are considered a pioneer of GSaaS.
