PALO ALTO, Calif. (Titan Space Technologies PR) — Titan Space Technologies has successfully deployed and run a suite of machine learning models on the HPE Spaceborne Computer-2, an edge computing and AI system aboard the International Space Station (ISS), in support of Axiom Space’s future missions and vision of smart spacecraft architectures. Working closely with Axiom and HPE, Titan was tasked with applying its space experimentation platform to a use case based on the new demands of a modern space station. Titan’s success demonstrates the applied artificial intelligence (AI) capabilities critical for conducting space experimentation on orbital destinations and spacecraft now and in the future.

“As the industry continues to make progress in the rapid path to commercialization in space, optimizing key applications and capabilities on the International Space Station will be essential to support future, mission-critical spacecraft demands,” said Dr. Mark Fernandez, principal investigator of Spaceborne Computer-2, HPE. “We look forward to continue collaborating with Titan Space Technologies and welcome its expertise and technical craftsmanship that is necessary to build required space infrastructure for successful commercial development in space.”

“Working closely with HPE to deploy and test large scale machine learning on HPE Spaceborne Computer-2 was the signal I’d hoped for, heralding the potential for applied AI at scale in space.”, said Russell Foltz-Smith, Titan Co-founder and Chief Compute Officer. “The AI ramp-up needed to support the record investment and human activity in LEO is something that HPE and Axiom are uniquely positioned to address.”

Ashley Pilipiszyn, Titan Co-founder and CEO, has quickly transitioned from her previous role as OpenAI’s Technical Director to space entrepreneur. “Axiom is thinking about the future of humans in space that blends years of industry experience combined with the innovative approach of today’s commercial entrepreneurs and technologists, and this is where Titan and Axiom align nicely. We believe that an orbital ecosystem driven by science, technology and commercialization has no boundaries. And we believe space experimentation is the path to that future.”

Meanwhile, Axiom prepares for a long journey of innovation that puts scientific research first.

“We are creating a platform today that will enable the future of research tomorrow”, said Tejpaul Bhatia, Chief Revenue Officer at Axiom Space.  “Our relationship with Titan brings a new level of progress and excitement as it represents the next inflection point for scientific discovery in space with the aid of AI.”
