Amazon Web Services is exhibiting at the show for the first time and its story is one of the world’s best-kept secrets.</p> <p>Amazon Web Services, Inc (AWS), to give its full name, is a subsidiary of Amazon and provides on-demand cloud computing platforms and application programming interfaces (APIs) to individuals, companies, and governments.</p> <p>Major General, US air force/space force (retired) Clint Crosier is the director of AWS’s aerospace and satellite division. And he has a good story to tell.</p> <p>“AWS is the world’s most comprehensive and broadly-adopted cloud computing specialist, with more than 200 fully-featured services available from data centres globally,” he said.</p> <p>“We have millions of customers – including the fastest-growing start-ups, largest enterprises, and leading government agencies – who are using AWS to lower their costs, increase their security, become more agile, and innovate faster.”</p> <p>In the UAE, AWS is the power behind the country’s ‘Hope’ Mars space probe. Data sent from the probe is received, processed, and automatically sent out via AWS to the myriad of research organisations and scientists who analyse it.</p> <p>“Hope is surveying the Martian atmosphere, giving us clues as to what happened to it over millions of years. AWS is getting the data to the right people safely, securely and quickly,” Crosier said.</p> <p>AWS is also a partner with the Mohammed Bin Rashid Space Centre (MBRSC) on data from its KhalifaSat Earth observation satellite.</p> <p>Launched into orbit on October 30 2018 from Japan's Tanegashima Space Centre, KhalifaSat provides high-resolution imagery of Earth for urban planning, change monitoring, monitoring environmental change and aiding relief efforts for natural disasters.</p> <p>“Space data is going to become even more important over the coming years. We expect to see a 10x increase in the amount of data being processed,” Crosier said.</p> <p>“AWS takes the pressure off organisations and allows them to do what they do best – building and operating spacecraft for example, leaving us to manage and distribute their data safely, securely and reliably,” Crosier concluded.</p> </div> <div> <div>Posted date</div> <div><time datetime="2021-11-15T12:00:00Z">Mon, 15/11/2021 - 12:00</time> </div> </div> <div> <div>Short title</div> <div>Dubai Airshow: Amazon delivering so much for the space community</div> </div> <div> <div>Short summary</div> <div><p>Mention the word ‘Amazon’ to most people and it conjures up images of home-delivered goods, Prime videos, or Fire tablet computers.</p> </div> </div> <div> <div>First paragraph</div> <div><p>Mention the word ‘Amazon’ to most people and it conjures up images of home-delivered goods, Prime videos, or Fire tablet computers.</p> </div> </div> <div> <div>Regions</div> <div> <div><a href="/middle-east-and-north-africa" hreflang="en">Middle East and North Africa</a></div> </div> </div> <div> <div>Other topics</div> <div> <div><a href="/space" hreflang="en">Space</a></div> </div> </div> <div> <div>Rate</div> <div><form class="fivestar-form-1" id="vote" data-drupal-selector="fivestar-form-1" action="/taxonomy/term/7/feed" method="post" accept-charset="UTF-8"> <div class="clearfix fivestar-average-text fivestar-average-stars fivestar-form-item fivestar-basic"><div class="js-form-item form-item js-form-type-fivestar form-item-vote js-form-item-vote form-no-label"> <div class="js-form-item form-item js-form-type-select form-item-vote js-form-item-vote form-no-label"> <select class="vote form-select" data-drupal-selector="edit-vote" aria-describedby="edit-vote--2--description" id="edit-vote--2" name="vote"><option value="-">Select rating</option><option value="20">Give it 1/5</option><option value="40">Give it 2/5</option><option value="60">Give it 3/5</option><option value="80">Give it 4/5</option><option value="100">Give it 5/5</option><option value="0">Cancel rating</option></select> <div id="edit-vote--2--description" class="description"> <div class="fivestar-summary fivestar-summary-average-count"><span class="empty">No votes yet</span></div> </div> </div> </div> </div><input style="display:none" data-drupal-selector="edit-submit" type="submit" id="edit-submit" name="op" value="Rate" class="button js-form-submit form-submit" /> <input autocomplete="off" data-drupal-selector="form-n3aptwzvbnww2gf5pj-mgl1wfuhwkpmwevcrirvxcu4" type="hidden" name="form_build_id" value="form-n3aptwZVbnwW2gF5pJ_mGL1WFuhwKPmwEvCRirvXcU4" /> <input data-drupal-selector="edit-fivestar-form-1" type="hidden" name="form_id" value="fivestar_form_1" /> </form> </div> </div> <div> <div>Add to home page</div> <div>Off</div> </div> <div> <div>Article main topic</div> <div><a href="/events" hreflang="en">Events</a></div> </div> <div> <div>Redirected</div> <div>Off</div> </div> <div> <div>Moved to features</div> <div>Off</div> </div> <div> <div>Lead image:</div> <div> <img property="schema:image" src="/sites/aerospace/times/files/2021-11/44_Amazon.jpg" width="1200" height="675" alt="" loading="lazy" typeof="foaf:Image" /> </div> </div> <div> <div>New batch</div> <div>Off</div> </div> Mon, 15 Nov 2021 06:32:43 +0000 cbrown 63988 at http://www.timesaerospace.aero Dubai Airshow: Astronaut Duke backs next generation of pioneers http://www.timesaerospace.aero/news/events/dubai-airshow-astronaut-duke-backs-next-generation-of-pioneers <div property="schema:text"><p>Sadly, Al Worden, who was command module pilot for the Apollo 15 lunar mission in 1971, and a visitor to the 2019 Dubai Airshow, died in March last year.</p> <p>Worden had been working with Kallman Worldwide, organiser of the USA partnership pavilion, for more than six years on a global goodwill mission to promote international collaboration. He was an active ambassador for US industry and an advocate for the next generation of pioneers.</p> <p>“Al was a good friend of mine and I miss him,” said Duke. “But life goes on and I’m happy to continue his work as an endeavour scholarship ambassador.”</p> <p>The Astronaut Al Worden Endeavour Scholarship scheme was launched at the US pavilion at the Dubai show in 2019. It aims to send select students and educators from the UAE on a week-long, all-expenses paid astronaut training experience at Space Camp in Huntsville, Alabama in the United States.</p> <p>“Unfortunately, due to Covid-19, we have had to delay the space camp trips, but we hope to get them back online in time,” said Duke.<br /> The next scholarship award ceremony takes place today at the USA pavilion at noon, when four students and an educator will be selected for the UAE endeavour mission team.</p> <p>Duke has been busy while in the UAE. He gave a talk at the mobility pavilion at the EXPO 2020 last night. He also visited a junior school and met with the four UAE astronauts – Hazza Al Mansoori, Sultan AlNeyadi, Mohammad AlMulla and Nora AlMatrooshi.&nbsp;</p> <p>Al Mansoori is a star in the UAE, having flown to the International Space Station in the Autumn of 2019.</p> <p>So, did Duke have any advice for the intrepid four?</p> <p>“Yes I did. Don’t do anything in space that you haven’t practiced on Earth,” Duke said smiling.</p> <p>He was referring to his attempt at setting a lunar high jump record on his 1972 mission.</p> <p>“It was the time of the Munich Olympics and we thought we would join in,” he said. Duke jumped about 0.81m, but overbalanced, and fell over backwards on to his primary life support system.</p> <p>“It could have been a fatal accident had my suit ruptured or PLSS broken,” he said. As fellow astronaut John Young said at the time: “That ain’t very smart!"</p> <p>Duke said he was impressed by the cooperation between the UAE and US businesses at the show. “It reminds of my early days at NASA,” Duke said. “We had 400,000 people working together. It just shows what cooperation can achieve,” he concluded.</p> </div> <div> <div>Posted date</div> <div><time datetime="2021-11-15T12:00:00Z">Mon, 15/11/2021 - 12:00</time> </div> </div> <div> <div>Short title</div> <div>Dubai Airshow: Astronaut Duke backs next generation of pioneers</div> </div> <div> <div>Short summary</div> <div><p>Apollo 16 astronaut Charlie Duke was at the show in support of the Al Worden endeavour scholarship.</p> </div> </div> <div> <div>First paragraph</div> <div><p>Apollo 16 astronaut Charlie Duke was at the show in support of the Al Worden endeavour scholarship.</p> </div> </div> <div> <div>Regions</div> <div> <div><a href="/middle-east-and-north-africa" hreflang="en">Middle East and North Africa</a></div> </div> </div> <div> <div>Other topics</div> <div> <div><a href="/space" hreflang="en">Space</a></div> </div> </div> <div> <div>Rate</div> <div><form class="fivestar-form-2" id="vote--2" data-drupal-selector="fivestar-form-2" action="/taxonomy/term/7/feed" method="post" accept-charset="UTF-8"> <div class="clearfix fivestar-average-text fivestar-average-stars fivestar-form-item fivestar-basic"><div class="js-form-item form-item js-form-type-fivestar form-item-vote js-form-item-vote form-no-label"> <div class="js-form-item form-item js-form-type-select form-item-vote js-form-item-vote form-no-label"> <select class="vote form-select" data-drupal-selector="edit-vote" aria-describedby="edit-vote--4--description" id="edit-vote--4" name="vote"><option value="-">Select rating</option><option value="20">Give it 1/5</option><option value="40">Give it 2/5</option><option value="60">Give it 3/5</option><option value="80">Give it 4/5</option><option value="100">Give it 5/5</option><option value="0">Cancel rating</option></select> <div id="edit-vote--4--description" class="description"> <div class="fivestar-summary fivestar-summary-average-count"><span class="empty">No votes yet</span></div> </div> </div> </div> </div><input style="display:none" data-drupal-selector="edit-submit" type="submit" id="edit-submit--2" name="op" value="Rate" class="button js-form-submit form-submit" /> <input autocomplete="off" data-drupal-selector="form-q3reupy7iiaq72uxukesabto7jcpe6edfr-hubityd0" type="hidden" name="form_build_id" value="form-Q3REUpY7IIaQ72UxUKesABto7JCpe6EdfR-hUBiTyd0" /> <input data-drupal-selector="edit-fivestar-form-2" type="hidden" name="form_id" value="fivestar_form_2" /> </form> </div> </div> <div> <div>Add to home page</div> <div>On</div> </div> <div> <div>Article main topic</div> <div><a href="/events" hreflang="en">Events</a></div> </div> <div> <div>Redirected</div> <div>Off</div> </div> <div> <div>Moved to features</div> <div>Off</div> </div> <div> <div>Lead image:</div> <div> <img property="schema:image" src="/sites/aerospace/times/files/2021-11/44_duke_1_billypix.jpg" width="1200" height="800" alt="" loading="lazy" typeof="foaf:Image" /> </div> </div> <div> <div>New batch</div> <div>Off</div> </div> Mon, 15 Nov 2021 06:10:08 +0000 cbrown 63987 at http://www.timesaerospace.aero TATV Insight: OneWeb to change connectivity satisfaction for airlines http://www.timesaerospace.aero/video/technology/tatv-insight-oneweb-to-change-connectivity-satisfaction-for-airlines <div> <div>Video section</div> <div><a href="/video/insight" hreflang="en">Insight</a></div> </div> <div> <div>Redirected</div> <div>Off</div> </div> Sat, 06 Nov 2021 05:17:32 +0000 cbrown 63901 at http://www.timesaerospace.aero UAE Analog Mission#1 begins in Moscow http://www.timesaerospace.aero/news/space/uae-analog-mission1-begins-in-moscow <div property="schema:text"><p><span style="font-size:12pt"><span style="font-family:Calibri,sans-serif">The UAE Analog Mission#1, part of the Scientific International Research in Unique Terrestrial Station (SIRIUS-21), is part of an eight-month project. </span></span></p> <p><span style="font-size:12pt"><span style="font-family:Calibri,sans-serif">From the UAE, analog astronaut Saleh AlAmeri joined the primary crew which included Oleg Blinov, Ekaterina Karyakina and Victoria Kirichenko from Russia’s Institute of Biomedical Problems of the Russian Academy of Sciences (IBMP) along with Ashley Kowalski and William Brown from the US space agency, NASA.</span></span></p> <p><span style="font-size:12pt"><span style="font-family:Calibri,sans-serif">The launch of the mission was attended by Salem AlMarri, Deputy Director General, MBRSC, Adnan AlRais, Mars 2117 Programme Manager, MBRSC and Mohammad bin Nashooq, UAE Analog Programme manager, who were part of the final preparations before the crew entered the Medical and Technical Ground-Based Experimental Facility (NEK) of IBMP.&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;
