Extend the utility of Azure capabilities through the power of space infrastructure
Azure Space was created to be the platform and ecosystem of choice for the mission needs of the space community. It is designed to make connectivity and compute increasingly attainable across industries including agriculture, energy, telecommunications and government.
Innovating together in space
By partnering with leaders in the space community, we will extend the utility of our Azure capabilities with worldwide satellite connectivity, unblock cloud computing in more scenarios and empower our partners and customers to achieve more.
A thriving ecosystem of satellite providers is needed to meet the world's growing network needs and we are excited to partner with industry leaders to bring these capabilities to our customers faster.
As space missions and satellite capabilities become more accessible, we are developing reliable, repeatable digital technologies to help the space community launch faster and with mission assurance.
