PSLV C43

Mission At-A-Glance:

  • Customers: BlackSky, Spire, Fleet, Harris
  • Launch Vehicle: PSLV
  • Launch Location: India’s Satish Dhawan Space Center
  • Total spacecraft: 12

Spaceflight launched 12 spacecraft in November from India’s Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV). Payloads aboard the mission included Fleet Space Technologies’ Centauri I, Harris Corporation’s HSAT, Spire’s LEMUR satellites, and BlackSky’s Global-1 microsatellite.

In addition to securing capacity aboard the launch vehicle, Spaceflight executed the integration of most of the payloads at its Seattle integration facility.

Among the payloads aboard the mission was Fleet Space Technologies’ second satellite. The fast-growing Internet of Things (IoT) company’s nanosatellite established a global network that connects the world’s IoT-connected sensors and devices. Over the coming years, the Australian business will create a constellation of nanosatellites to create a scalable, global network to help connect many of the 75 billion sensors expected to dot the world over the next decade. The nanosatellites will bring mass-scale efficiencies for industries such as agriculture, mining, and logistics by enabling businesses to gather complex, revealing data to improve operations.
