Australian New Space company Fleet Space Technologies has selected Italian aviation and aerosapce firm Tyvak International SRL to mass-produce satellites for its Low Earth Orbit constellation, according to an online statement by Flavia Tata Nardini, Fleet’s co-founder and CEO, posted on 21 February 2020.

Fleet and Tyvak have been working together since 2019, and Tyvak’s parent company, Terran Orbital, has recently announced the opening of Tyvak Australia, its local subsidiary, located in Adelaide’s Lot 14. This move will enable the companies to manufacture Fleet’s future satellites in South Australia.

“We are now preparing to launch our next batch of satellites to meet the enormous customer demand to connect LoRaWAN™️ devices to our flagship satellite gateway which significantly reduces cost, power and bandwidth challenges of other solutions on the market,” Nardini wrote on LinkedIn. “It’s been 14 months since our first satellites reached space and we’re excited to be work on the next batches of satellites for launch, with Tyvak implementing new antenna technologies that maximise the capabilities of nanosatellites in Low Earth Orbit. Mass production of nanosatellites is where the New Space economy truly comes into its own. Launching large batches of small satellites helps drive down connectivity costs for customers, and improves coverage and network resilience where satellite communication is needed most.”
