Sorry Mr. Bezos, Your Cloud Can’t Approve Your Space Launch, Not Without Range Safety Clusters

News of Jeff Bezos’ flight to space hit the airwaves this month with fervor. Self-proclaimed space nerds, tech nerds, and the like swarmed the internet to watch billionaire Amazon tycoon and his crew take flight to the edge of space. He’s not the first and likely won’t be the last.

But before anyone can actually launch into the great beyond, a risk and safety analysis must be performed. This range safety calculates hazards and risks due to spacecraft malfunctions.  In simple terms, what happens to the civilian population if the space craft accidentally explodes; whose house is destroyed. 

To conduct this analysis there are thousands of data points to consider and equal or greater number of potential simulations that must be run.  This requires dedicated, secure, reliable, and consistent high performance computing power.   PSSC Labs on premise PowerWulf ZXR1+ HPC Clusters are employed by the Federal Aviation Authority FAA, United States Navy, United State Air Force, United States Space Force and others to perform this vital step in the mission launch protocol.  In fact no mission to space actually receives the green light for launch until the PowerWulf ZXR1+ HPC Clusters have completed their range safety analysis. 

For over 25 years, PSSC Labs has been providing custom, on-premise high performance computing systems designed to meet our clients’ unique enterprise computing challenges, no matter what they may be. We are experts in deep learning solutions, HPC AI, and big data applications. PSSC Labs is committed to delivering relentless performance with the absolute lowest total cost of ownership all backed with industry-leading US-based support.
