Sidus Space to deploy edge computing for Exo-Space in new contract

Sidus Space, a provider of satellite services and solutions, has announced that it was awarded a contract to deploy edge computing technology for Exo-Space, a hardware and software developer for satellites.

As part of the agreement, Sidus Space will integrate and launch Exo Space’s artificial intelligence software technology on Earth Observation satellites. Sidus Space plans to integrate Exo-Space’s payload into LizzieSat, its hybrid 3D-printed satellite. The estimated launch date is 2023.

This collaboration will enable ultra-low latency space analytics for users worldwide. It will allow them to gain insights into Earth observation data with a fraction of the usual lag time. Government, commercial and NGO customers can take more effective action in time-sensitive situations.

Sidus Space CEO and founder Carol Craig believes this new partnership will benefit both companies and the broader space industry. She said in a statement, “We are excited to be selected as Exo-Space’s deployment partner to provide proof-of-concept for its important technology,” said Carol Craig, Sidus Founder and CEO. “As part of our mission of “Bringing space down to earth, we seek to enable customers to prove new technologies that will collaboratively advance the space ecosystem and this agreement with Exo-Space is perfectly aligned with our mission.”

Exo-Space CEO & co-founder Jeremy Allam also expressed his excitement about the collaboration, saying, “The shared vision between our companies provides a path to pair our computing technology with Sidus’ spacecraft resources, enabling the delivery of intelligence that will help to effectively address existing global crises, as well as those that present themselves in the future.”

According to the companies, the first launch will serve as a prototype for future missions, which will deploy additional units. The following launches will include more sensor resources, enhanced computation power, and upgraded communications and networking. Given the right tools, this technology can detect and send continuous notifications about events anywhere on Earth within 60 seconds.

“The ability to maintain sub-minute awareness of activity anywhere on Earth or in space will revolutionize commercial and government operations. Additionally, our intelligent tasking platform will enable accessibility of this information to a much broader audience,” added Allam.

Sidus Space also recently announced that it had been named a winner in the 2022 Merit Awards for Technology. Sidus Space won a gold award in the space category. The Merit Awards for Technology recognize businesses and industries worldwide that create technologies for everyday use. This can be consumer or business-to-business products, solutions, leadership and innovation.
