Amazon Invests in Indian Space Tech Startups, Partners with ISRO

AWS announced that it successfully ran a suite of AWS compute and machine learning (ML) software on an orbiting satellite, in a first-of-its-kind space experiment.

Amazon Web Services (AWS) will engage with the nation's space start-ups and support the space industry in data management in an effort to capitalise on the multi-billion dollar opportunity in the Indian space sector.

The experiment, which has been running for the past 10 months in low Earth orbit (LEO), was created to examine a quicker, more effective way for users to gather and evaluate important space data directly on their orbiting satellites.
