AWS Ground Station CLI Contact Control Utility

Solution overview

This repo contains an interactive CLI utility for scheduling AWS Ground Station satellite contacts. Manually navigating the AWS Ground Station CLI is somewhat clunky, so this tool aims to streamline the process. Furthermore, it expands on the functionality available in the AWS Ground Station web console by:

  • scheduling/canceling multiple contacts at the same time
  • filtering contacts based on maximum elevation
  • scheduling contacts with precise duration

The utility can:

  1. Schedule contacts with elevation and duration requirements
  2. Show contacts of the following types: "SCHEDULED", "SCHEDULING", "FAILED_TO_SCHEDULE", "AWS_CANCELLED", "CANCELLED", COMPLETED", "FAILED", "AWS_CANCELLED", "AWS_FAILED", "CANCELLED", "FAILED_TO_SCHEDULE"
  3. Cancel scheduled contacts

Contacts with duration shorter than the whole craft pass are scheduled in the middle of the pass to maximize craft elevation.

The tool uses default AWS CLI credentials/region stored in the /.aws folder Learn how to set up your AWS CLI: https://docs.aws.amazon.com/cli/latest/userguide/cli-chap-welcome.html

NB: Canceling on demand contacts incurs their full cost!

The utility uses the python SDK to call the AWS Ground Station API. It can serve as an example to customers that want to integrate AWS Ground Station contact scheduling into their mission control offerings.
