Adelaide nanosatellite builder and operator, Fleet Space Technology, has thrown open its array of small satellites to manufacturers wishing to connect their operations and devices.
The company has launched a website seeking applications from companies and will connect up to one million devices at a cost of US$2.00 (Aud$2.75) per device, per year.
Applications are open to industry until February 28.
CEO Flavia Tata Nardini announced the company’s Project Galaxy at The Things Conference for LoRaWAN™️ devices in Amsterdam.
She said Fleet’s solution is ideal for deploying LoRaWAN™️ at scale in Industrial IoT.
“Fleet is fulfilling its mission of opening the world to LPWAN technologies from space by launching capacity of one million devices at an unprecedented price for satellite connectivity,” Nardini said in a statement.
“Until now, 90% of the Earth’s surface has not had access to low cost backhaul. This changes today, with industry now able to connect anything, anywhere.”
Fleet Space has four Cubesats in low Earth orbit and a ground station near Adelaide.
The company also makes the Fleet Portal, a fully integrated Satellite/LoRaWAN™️ gateway.
Fleet Space Technologies is venture capital funded with investors including Blackbird Ventures, Atlassian co-founder Mike Cannon-Brookes, James Schultz from Earth Space Robotics, and Horizon Partners.
