Nanosatellites and multi-sensor geophysics: new technologies for Earth, Moon and Mars

Be part of the exciting space exploration program, connecting remote networks of geophysical sensors to satellites.


Fleet Space Technologies’ Centauri nanosatellite

Nanosatellites offer great potential for exploration, linking multiple geophysical sensors in grids over thousands of kilometres to produce a stream of real-time data over time scales of months to years.  

A collaboration between Fleet Space Technologies, OZ Minerals and the University of Adelaide was recently awarded an Accelerated Discovery Initiative grant from the Geological Survey of South Australia to develop exciting new technology that can be used on Earth, the Moon or Mars.


Regolith environments covering deep mineral system deposits

The project will involve developing passive seismics sensors and heat-flow needles to be deployed around Carapateena.  The sensors will be linked in small grids to the Satellite/LoRaWAN integrated gateways, to collect data from hundreds of locations, and relay such data to Fleet Space Technologies satellites, and back to our offices!

Be part of the exciting new space industry, most of which is based in Adelaide.
