Can Aethero Become the Intel or Nvidia of the Space Industry?

Satellite sensors collect an incredible amount of raw data, but on-orbit compute limitations mean that operators have little way to process this data in space. The startup is developing radiation-hardened edge computers for on-orbit data processing and eventually even autonomous decision-making. The startup’s first generation space computer is called the AetherNxN, which is based around an Nvidia Orin processor. Aethero is planning to release a larger, second-generation module for bigger spacecraft before transitioning to a proprietary space processor. “We see ourselves as becoming the Intel or Nvidia of the space industry,” he said.
