Hypergiant Partners with Dynetics to Create Space Mission Solutions

Hypergiant announced Wednesday a new partnership with Dynetics to develop space mission solutions for government and commercial customers.

The companies plan to use Amazon Web Services and its cloud for artificial intelligence, machine learning, analytics, Internet of Things and AWS Ground Stations 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,” according to a news release.

First, the companies plan to develop services to support Hypergiant’s planned missions using its 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,”  Hypergiant Founder and Chief Executive Officer Ben Lamm said in a news release.

Dynetics, an aerospace and defense company based in Huntsville, Alabama, brings over a decade of human spaceflight as well as satellite development, deployment, and deployment experience to the partnership. It also has 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 withHypergiantwhile also utilizing AWS to deliver flexible, cost-effective, and secure solutions in-line with the customers’ needs,” Jonathan Pettus, Dynetics vice president of Strategic Cybersecurity, Artificial Intelligence and Information Technology, said in a news release.

Founded in 2018, Hypergiant Industries has offices in Austin, Dallas, Houston, Seattle and Washington, DC.

This is the second major partnership for Hypergiant this year. In August, Hypergiant announced a big partnership with Booz Allen Hamilton, a huge government contractor.
