December 1, 2021 – Singapore’s national space office, the Office for Space Technology and Industry (OSTIn), and Amazon Web Services (AWS) have signed a Statement of Strategic Intent and Cooperation. This Statement is the first of its kind for AWS in Asia, and will help support Singapore’s focus on space as a potential new industry for economic growth and technology development. Singapore has an emerging space and technology ecosystem. This includes the academia, startups, and other industry groups, carrying out a wide range of space activities, from the design and manufacture of satellites and related components to the provision of satellite-based services. OSTIn works closely with research institutes, industry, and fellow government agencies to build relevant space capabilities to support this growth. The Statement between AWS and OSTIn outlines specific areas of collaboration designed to foster the development of space technologies and support the creation of a vibrant, sustainable, and innovative space hub in Singapore. AWS will support Singapore’s efforts in developing the space industry by providing resources to support businesses with AWS credits, educate and train talent, and enable the development of innovative new products and services in the space industry. This is in line with Singapore’s move towards an innovation-led economy. Space technologies have the potential to support national priorities in aviation, maritime, climate, and the environment, and inspire future generations to pursue a career in the science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) fields. AWS and OSTIn plan to share more details on the specific initiatives to support this collaboration to accelerate space innovation in Singapore in early 2022.
