Fleet SPACE to expand the production of 3D printed satellites in the USA

Private space company Fleet Space has established its first international HQ in Houston, Texas, USA – a milestone that follows the recent $26.4m (USD) Series B investment the company secured.

This expansion to the US and with-it proximity to large-scale market opportunities across industries including: natural resources, energy, and sovereign strategic functions is a significant pillar of highly ambitious growth plans.

As a reminder, Fleet is committed to creating the world’s most advanced low-power satellite network to secure planet-wide connectivity coverage for millions of devices through the implementation of its proprietary Smallsat technology.

The choice of Houston as an anchor location that feeds satellite offices in California and eventually the East Coast places Fleet at the heart of the world’s leading government space agency, NASA.

This follows a collaboration between Fleet and NASA on the Artemis manned missions to the moon planned for 2024. Fleet is playing a major role in this endeavour through its technical competency in mineral exploration which will underpin the ultimate mission to discover what is required to support human life on the lunar surface.

Fleet is already working in lock-step with US space industry regulators and has applied to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) for market access for its beamforming smallsats in the US and Fleet’s smart edge device, called a portal, has completed FCC certification for use in the US.

The expansion will also be underpinned by the recently announced Alpha constellation which uses latest 3D Printing and additive manufacturing techniques to quickly deploy lighter and more economical constellations of smallsats to respond to increased global demand as the company expands its operations in key international markets.
