Fleet Space Launches Next-Gen Centauri-6 Satellite on SpaceX Bandwagon-1 Mission

Today, Fleet Space Technologies - Australia’s leading space exploration company - announced the successful deployment of its next-generation Centauri-6 satellite on SpaceX’s Bandwagon-1 mission, marking the latest milestone for Fleet Space after a period of exponential growth and delivery of multiple innovative breakthroughs in the global space and mineral exploration sectors.

Rapid global adoption of Fleet Space’s satellite-enabled mineral exploration solution, ExoSphere, has been the catalyst behind the company’s sustained innovation in space technologies and growth over the past year. Over 40 industry leading exploration companies - including Rio Tinto, Core Lithium, and Barrick Gold - have used the technology to complete 300+ surveys for a variety of critical minerals across five continents. In 2023, Fleet Space completed a heavily oversubscribed A$50 million Series C funding round, doubled its valuation to A350$ million, and was named Australia’s fastest growing company.

Fleet Space’s Centauri-4 recently became the world’s smallest voice-enabled satellite after a demonstration of Push-To-Talk (PTT) capabilities to the Australian Defence Force Joint Capabilities Division as part of their ASCEND2LEO program. Fleet Space’s SPIDER seismic technology will also head to the Moon to search for water ice and deliver new insights about the lunar regolith on Firefly Aerospace’s second lunar mission in 2026 as part of a NASA CLPS initiative.

Centauri-6’s addition to Fleet Space’s satellite constellation will play a vital role in servicing the global demand for its satellite-enabled mineral exploration solution, ExoSphere, while also building capacity to deliver advanced SATCOM capabilities with microsatellite architectures.
