Applications are already open and proposals are expected by April 21, AWS said.

AWS is offering this opportunity in collaboration with Seraphim, a London-based investment group focused exclusively on the space industry, which will provide business development and investment advice.
AWS and Seraphim will select a cohort of space startups to participate in an intensive four-week program with AWS Cloud and technical training to help them accelerate research, development and growth using AWS.
“Startups are a catalyst for bold new experiments in the space industry,” said Clint Croisier, director of aerospace and satellites at AWS, in a statement.
“We are proud to announce the AWS Space Accelerator as part of our ongoing commitment to help startups succeed and shape the future of aerospace. We look forward to helping the first cohort of businesses get started and grow through this new program. “
AWS and Seraphim welcome applications from innovative startups at all stages of maturity working with space technology or space-derived data that have a clearly defined and unique mission.
Eligible missions may include, but are not limited to, Earth observation, electronics and robotics, spacecraft launch and delivery, spacecraft hardware and software, manufacturing operations and launch launch, etc., AWS said.
