Hewlett-Packard Enterprise (HPE) & Microsoft to launch Artificial Intelligence (AI) capabilities to International Space Station (ISS).

Hewlett Packard Enterprise and Microsoft are launching cloud computing to the International Space Station on Feb. 18, 2021 with the Spaceborne Computer-2. 

Microsoft will connect its cloud computing Azure Space platform to the Spaceborne Computer-2, a Hewlett-Packard Enterprise product promising to "deliver edge computing and artificial intelligence capabilities to the International Space Station (ISS).

Spaceborne Computer-2 will launch to space Feb. 20 aboard a Northrop Grumman Cygnus cargo craft that will also deliver tons of other supplies, experiments and food for the station's Expedition 64 astronauts. An Antares rocket will launch the Cygnus NG-15 cargo mission from NASA's Wallops Flight Facility on Wallops Island, Virginia.

Spaceborne Computer-2's mission could last two or three years. Once the computer is up and running in orbit, researchers will be able to use the Azure cloud system to do intensive processing or to transmit results back to the device. The computer is based on HPE's Edgeline Converged Edge system designed to operate in harsh environments.
