Adelaide-based satellite manufacturer Fleet Space Technologies successfully launched its fifth commercial nanosatellite and is looking to expand production in Australia. Named Centauri 3, the 10-kilogram nanosatellite was launched from New Zealand’s Launch Complex 1 at Mahia Peninsula aboard a Rocket Lab Electron launch vehicle on March 23, 2021.

Centauri 3 will orbit 550 kilometers above the Earth and has begun commissioning and engaging in full operations. The Centauri 3 nanosatellite will be joined by two more this year and a further 16 in 2022 and 2023.
