Space based manufacturing company that is building machines to produce the space infrastructure of the future. In-Space Mobility will transform and accelerate the development of space economy.
Space Machines confirmed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to test the deployment of nanosatellites from Fleet Space Technologies in 2022.
Optimus-1, the largest commercial satellite under construction in Australia, is an orbital transfer vehicle providing cost-effective insertion of small satellites into low Earth orbit.

Four Australian Start-ups have been added to Space Machines Companys’ (SMC) growing list of customers for the launch of its Optimus demonstration platform in 2022. The organisations include Spiral Blue (who are providing the onboard computing for space imagery), Esper Satellite Imagery, which specialise in hyperspectral imagery, Internet of Things (IoT) Provider, Dandelions and robotic arm company, Sperospace.
