Azure Space has lift-off in Australia

According to Microsoft, Azure Space embodies its strategy to deliver cloud-powered innovation on and off the planet. By integrating the Azure cloud platform with technology from a broad ecosystem of space partners, Microsoft will focus on creating ways to deliver solutions to Australian customers across a range of industries to address challenging issues.

In Australia, Azure Space is led by Lynn McDonald, a former US Air Force Colonel with experience in space-related endeavours. To date, Azure Space Australia has established operations at Adelaide’s Lot Fourteen; signed a Statement of Strategic Intent with the Australian Space Agency; inked an agreement with Nokia and the South Australian Government for space and 5G innovation; plus unveiled its Microsoft for Space Startups Australia program.

The signing comes at a time of increasing momentum in the Australian space sector and acknowledges the importance of collaboration between the public and private sectors to leverage space technologies for the benefit of life on Earth.

Microsoft, through Azure, is focusing on three key areas in the growing Australian space industry: investment, partnership and innovation.
