Amazon Web Services, the cloud-computing branch of the e-commerce giant, is further expanding its services in the growing space industry.
The company announced on Tuesday that AWS is establishing a new unit called Aerospace and Satellite Solutions, led by former U.S. Air Force Maj. Gen. Clint Crosier — who most recently directed the establishment of the U.S. Space Force.
“We find ourselves in the most exciting time in space since the Apollo missions,” Crosier said in a statement.
