Hypergiant and Dynetics Partner to Deliver Smarter, Faster, More Cost-Effective Solutions for Space Operations Run on Amazon Web Services
Hypergiant, an AI products and solutions company, and Dynetics, a high-technology solutions company, are partnering to deliver modern, agile and efficient space mission solutions for government and commercial customers using Amazon Web Services (AWS). As Amazon Partner Network (APN) members, the Hypergiant and Dynetics teams are leveraging the AWS cloud in the areas of artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML), analytics, Internet of Things (IoT), and AWS Ground Station to deliver mission and payload on-demand services. These services will support the current space ecosystem customers and also open up opportunities for new participants in the burgeoning space economy.
The first evolution of this partnership between the two companies will involve the development of an integrated set of services that will support Hypergiant’s planned missions utilizing their Slingshot deployment system and NASA’s International Space Station infrastructure.
“Now that space-mission hardware costs are being reduced, our ability to get more data, more often, is rapidly increasing. People need a way to get that data more efficiently and to interpret it more effectively. That’s why we entered into this partnership with Dynetics: smarter, more cost-effective solutions for space data to all companies,” said Hypergiant founder and chief executive officer Ben Lamm.
Dynetics brings over a decade of human spaceflight as well as satellite development, deployment, and deployment experience to the partnership. The aerospace and defense company also benefit from 45 years of experience in systems engineering, analytics, and hardware and software development.
“Demand for these solutions continues to increase from civil space, defense, and national intelligence agencies. Our rich experience with US DoD, NASA, and various commercial aerospace companies provides a unique value proposition with Hypergiant while also utilizing AWS to deliver flexible, cost-effective, and secure solutions in-line with the customers’ needs,” said Jonathan Pettus, Dynetics vice president of Strategic Cybersecurity, Artificial Intelligence and Information Technology.
The Hypergiant and Dynetics partnership allows for significant cost-savings to organizations that have requirements to operate in space and avoiding using their own significant capital investments in mission and payload operations services. Companies will be able to focus on the core business purposes of their mission.
