The CENTAURI-5 spacecraft is part of a constellation commissioned by Fleet Space Technologies to provide purpose-built global connectivity solutions for the energy, utility and resource industries. Tyvak International, a Terran Orbital Corporation, designed and developed the spacecraft. Fleet Space provides the payload which consists of the world’s first 3D printed all-metal patch antenna array combined with S-band digital beamforming. The spacecraft is based on a Trestles platform.

CENTAURI-5 implements new antenna technologies that maximize the capabilities of nanosatellites in low Earth orbit. Launching large batches of small satellites reduces connectivity costs for customers while improving network coverage and resilience in areas that have a high need for satellite communication. Centauri satellites are built in the 6U CubeSat form factor. They weigh less than 10 kg and are the size of a shoebox.
