Establishing the Platform for Space Computing through GalacticOS

A Closer Look into a
GalacticSky Powered Satellite

GalacticSky™ combines modern computing hardware with a set of GalacticOS™ software services, making tasks such as scheduling, deploying, monitoring and managing resources for satellite applications simple, through the GUI or set of REST APIs.

Application Management Service
AMS
This service allows the customer to create new applications including the ability to launch a new VM with specific parameters, upload applications to a satellite or upgrade existing running applications.  Once the application has been successfully loaded into the satellite, the user can issue standard commands such as start, stop, restart, pause and resume with this service.
System Scheduling Services
SSS
These services allow users to schedule applications to run at selected dates, times and orbital locations as well as for given durations. Applications don’t have to run 24×7 if they don’t need to — they can run only when necessary and on demand.

Metrics Monitoring Service
MMS
Monitors statistics on various system components such as satellites, servers, VMs, containers, applications and services.  These measurements are collected at regular intervals and maintained in a database.  Some examples are CPU usage, application memory usage and number of running containers.  The metrics service is extensible such that new metrics can be readily added.  The metrics can be displayed on the GalacticSky UI over selected time periods for analysis or accessed via an API for the customer to feed into other systems.
Alert Generation Services
AGS
Generate alerts or events based on certain conditions or thresholds being met.  Certain alerts are integrated in to the system such as a CPU or service becoming unavailable but additional alerts can be created and configured based on the user needs.
Data Streaming Services
DSS
Data can be made available as a stream to any number of listeners who register for its use.  This allows many applications to share use of common data, in real-time from a data generation source.
Hyper-converged Resource Service
HCRS
This service allows storage volumes on one or more satellites to be accessed as if it is local storage to a given application on the same or another satellite.

Dedicated or shared,
the choice is yours

Customer applications operate in their own virtual machine environment containing the necessary processor, memory, storage and sensor resources, allowing for single- or multi-tenant satellite configurations.

Secure and redundant
for peace of mind

Redundancy and security are built-in so that developers can focus on application functionality on the operating systems of their choice.
