  About Centauri-1

  Heaviest satellite launched by Fleet Space Technologies into space at 4 kg

Centauri-1 is a commercial satellite operated by Fleet Space Technologies (Australia) for the purpose of communications.

Delivered via PSLV (launch vehicle) from Satish Dhawan Space Centre, it was launched into space on 29 November 2018 and orbits the Earth as a sun-synchronous LEO satellite. Centauri-1 was constructed by Pumpkin Space Systems (USA).

Centauri-1 has a launch mass of 4 kg and orbits around the Earth with the COSPAR ID 2018-099BD and NORAD ID 43809.

With an orbital eccentricity of 1.75E-03, the satellite's perigee, which is the point of the orbit closest to the Earth's center of mass, is 476km while its apogee, which is the point of the orbit farthest from the Earth's center of mass, is 500km. It takes 95 minutes to orbit the Earth at an inclination of 97 degrees to the equatorial plane of the Earth.
