Smartronix and Orbital Insight announce partnership to drive
Space and C5ISR innovation on AWS
HERNDON, VA - (28 September 2021) -- Smartronix, LLC, a
Gartner® Magic QuadrantTM recognized next-generation
cloud, C5ISR, and advanced
engineering and IT solutions provider, and Orbital Insight, a
innovator providing multi-source geospatial data for global-scale insights, are
partnering to accelerate mission outcomes through innovations in Space and
Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance powered by Amazon Web Services
(AWS) cloud technologies.
Orbital Insight analyzes satellite, drone, balloon, and other unmanned aerial
vehicle images, including cell phone, ship and vehicle geolocation data, to gain
strategic insights from multiple sensor data. The Orbital Insight GO platform
automates the most difficult steps of deriving insights allowing its customers
to answer challenging geospatial questions. Through this partnership, Orbital
Insight will participate in Smartronix' Accreditation Accelerator Program, which
is designed to help ISVs and solution providers achieve accreditation in a
fraction of the time it might otherwise take them. This solution is built on AWS
and will help Orbital Insight achieve DoD Impact Level 4/5 security controls
required for data to be accessible and utilized by mission customers across
Smartronix' C5ISR client base.
Kevin O'Brien, Chief Executive Officer at Orbital Insight, commented, "Through
our partnership, Orbital
Insight will have the ability to reach C5ISR customers on an accelerated
timeline, and focus our time and energy on delivering stronger insights through
additional data sources faster, while meeting security and compliance
requirements in the cloud, which is Smartronix’ core strength."
"We are excited to accelerate Orbital Insight's delivery to mission customers,"
said John Sankovich, President of Cloud Solutions at Smartronix. "Smartronix has
been an AWS Premier Consulting Partner focused on delivering security and
compliance at scale in the cloud for over a decade. We look forward to providing
our capabilities to Orbital Insight, who can then be an innovation driver across
Smartronix' C5ISR customers and the entire Space ecosystem."
Both Orbital Insight and Smartronix recognize the importance of leveraging AWS
in this work.
"At AWS, we enable our partners, customers, and entire industries to reinvent
themselves to remain at the cutting edge of progress," said Sandy Carter, Vice
President, Worldwide Public Sector Partners and Programs at AWS. "We are excited
to see our partners' leverage cloud technology used in Space to deliver insights
to the C5ISR community with greater speed."
