SkyWatch Space Applications Inc. (“SkyWatch”), a leading provider of machine-to-machine (M2M) Earth observation aggregation and data management platforms for satellite operators, announced at World Satellite Business Week the launch of the TerraStream Certified Solutions Provider program.
SkyWatch’s integrated data management platform, TerraStream, provides satellite operators with the ability to monetize, process, and manage their Earth observation data. Satellite operators often approach SkyWatch in the early stages of their journey, and SkyWatch quickly recognized the opportunity to provide satellite operators with access to a network of trusted, vetted, and integrated solutions providers across functions such as ground station, command-and-control, on-board analytics, and raw data processing.
The program launches with eight key TerraStream Certified Solutions Providers: AIKO, Atlas Space Operations, AWS Ground Station, CATALYST, Kubos, Mobius Labs, RBC Signals, and Spiral Blue.
“With the launch of the TerraStream Certified Solutions Provider program, we’re able to offer satellite operators with industry-leading, end-to-end solutions to optimize and shorten their path to revenue. With our Solutions Providers, we’re providing robust solutions to help forge new paths into space, so we can make life on Earth better,”
says Joel Cumming, Chief Technology Officer at SkyWatch.
“We are thrilled to partner with SkyWatch and to unlock deep insights for TerraStream users through our AI solutions. The geospatial sector is growing more rapidly than ever and Mobius Labs is here to make sense of that exponential increase in data. We can’t wait to see what the world will do with the power to easily pull intelligence from so much available information,”
says Will Hannan, Chief Commercial Officer at Mobius Labs.

TerraStream is an automated data distribution platform for Earth observation data providers that is more functional, capital-efficient, and fast to deploy than a custom build. A cost-effective way to monetize data and expand market reach, the TerraStream platform includes custom processing, image normalization, data hosting, tasking management, opportunity analytics, and a robust API suite. Drawing on the team’s past experience in space data aggregation software, SkyWatch is building the infrastructure to connect satellite data operators and application developers. The company raised a $17.2 million Series B this year and is expecting to double its size in 2022.
AIKO’s main product, called MiRAGE, is an autonomy-enabling software package that can make the satellite independent from ground control. MiRAGE can be tailored for the mission of reference through various plug-ins. For instance, an Earth Observation satellite could leverage data processing plug-ins to perform onboard cloud detection and object tracking.
