Co-founder and Chief Executive Officer Flavia Tata Nardini was one of only three employees when the company began, and has watched the business grow to over 30 employees working at the cutting edge of non-satellite IoT technologies.
The company has received continued support from the South Australian Government over its life, as well as securing funding from international investors. The company secured a Future Jobs Fund grant to assist in the construction of South Australia’s first nanosatellite ground station and mission control centre. Shortly after in November 2018, Fleet Space made history when they launched Australia’s first four commercial nano-satellites – Proxima 1 and 2, followed by Centauri 1 and 2 – into low Earth orbit.
The company is currently working towards launching Centauri 3 and working with a team of 22 national partners to deploy satellite constellation on the Moon and on Mars.
We aim to continue launching things into space successfully over and over again and attract international investors. We want to be launching as many satellites as possible and mass produce them, then bring the same tech to space exploration.
