Centauri 1, 2

Centauri 2 [Fleet Space]

Centauri 1 and 2 are pathfinder satellites for Fleet Space Technologies' planned network for global satellite connectivity to the Internet-of-Things (IoT).

The Centauri satellites are built to the 3U CubeSat form factor.

Two initial satellites were launched in 2018 as secondary payloads. Centauri 2 was launched on an Indian PSLV rocket, while Centauri 1 flew on a SpaceX Falcon-9 v1.2 (Block 5).

The next generation satellites, beginning with Centauri 3, are larger 6U CubeSats.
