AWS- AWS Unveils Cohort of 14 Startups for its 2023 Space Accelerator

2023 Cohort

Kawa Space (San Francisco, California) – Kawa provides space-powered signals intelligence (SIGINT), electronic intelligence (ELINT), and maritime domain awareness (MDA) as a service.

Delta-V Analytics Inc (New Castle, Delaware) – Delta-V Analytics provides a cloud-based platform that automates satellite constellation operations using digital twin technology.

GATE Space (Vienna, Austria) – GATE Space enables the next generation of in-space mobility by providing scalable and cost-efficient plug-and-play mobility to satellites and orbital transfer vehicles.

GRASP (Lille, France) – GRASP’s mission is to develop satellite instruments and products that provide a complete picture of the Earth’s atmosphere and surface. These will be designed specifically to help decision-makers select paths that minimize climate change and improve air quality and human health.

In Orbit Aerospace (Torrance, California) – In Orbit is building infrastructure to support mass manufacturing in space. This startup operates uncrewed orbital platforms and re-entry vehicles, with the goal of providing more accessible and cost-effective service to and from space.

Integrate (Seattle, Washington) – Integrate is building a program logistics platform for complex hardware development and deployment scenarios for the space industry. The company’s collaboration-first approach allows program managers to organically pull together hardware specifications, high level requirements, and schedules into a single collaborative software platform for faster execution.

Little Place Labs (Houston, Texas) – Little Place Labs specializes in providing near-real-time space analytics for both ground and space-based applications, using advanced machine learning algorithms deployed directly on satellites and other space infrastructures. This enables rapid, precise, and cost-effective delivery of critical insights across commercial and national security sectors, with the ultimate purpose of making the world a better place.

Lunasonde (Tucson, Arizona) – Lunasonde is making the underground world visible, transforming humanity’s approach to subsurface exploration and resource extraction. Using low-frequency radar, Lunasonde can identify objects and materials hundreds of meters underground, resulting in the first three-dimensional map below the surface of the Earth, and eventually the Moon, Mars, asteroids, and beyond.

Nominal (Austin, Texas) – Nominal builds continuous validation software for hardware organizations testing and deploying high-stakes, complex systems. The Nominal platform equips engineering teams to explore, monitor, and enrich mission-critical test data — all in one place.

Raven Space Systems, Inc. (Kansas City, Kansas) – Raven Space Systems is building entirely 3D printed reentry capsules for on-demand cargo return from space. The company’s automated factory will enable cheaper and faster capsule production with adaptability for any mission.

Rogue Space Systems (Laconia, New Hampshire) – Rogue Space Systems provides in-space services through autonomous robotic systems, and aims to support a future vision of growth and expansion in space, including the tools and resources humanity will need to flourish.

Space Kinetic (Albuquerque, New Mexico) – Space Kinetic is turning solar power into low-cost, in-space mobility with a novel electromechanical propulsion system. With several diverse applications across the space domain, the company’s long-term goal is to build a cislunar logistics network for sustainable space operations.

Violet Labs (Minneapolis, Minnesota) – Violet Labs is building cloud-based software integration for complex hardware engineering. The Violet platform aggregates data from software tools used across the hardware development lifecycle into a powerful single source of truth.

Xona Space Systems Inc (Burlingame, California) – Xona Space Systems enables modern technologies to operate safely in any environment, anywhere on Earth. Utilizing the efficiency of small satellites, Xona’s PULSAR service is a commercial “Super-GPS” designed to provide unprecedented precision, protection, and availability.
