Centauri 6

Alpha [Fleet Space]

The Alpha satellites are operational versions of Fleet Space Technologies' planned 140 satellite network for global satellite connectivity to the Internet-of-Things (IoT) designed for use in the energy, utilities, and resource industries.

The Alpha satellites are based on the technology tested on the Centauri satellites. They are larger than the earlier CubeSat based versions and are built by using 3D printing technology. The Alpha satellites feature 64 antenna elements (compared to 4 on Centauri), increasing their capability by the factor 16, while only having a mass of 4 times of the Centauri satellite.
