We speak with CEO and Co-Founder of Fleet Space Technologies, Flavia Tata Nardini, based in Adelaide, Australia.
Fleet Space Technologies is a leader in Australia’s rapidly growing space industry. Fleet’s latest technology; ‘ExoSphere by Fleet’, delivers a solution for the mineral exploration industry providing lightning fast, highly scalable 3D mapping solutions to pinpoint minerals and increase accuracy in drilling targets.
ExoSphere is helping solve one of the most critical global challenges and is already helping the world transition to clean-air mobility technologies by creating a faster, more sustainable and less expensive route to finding critical mineral deposits. The company has proven success with Core Lithium which help identified previously unknown targets.
Flavia was born and educated in Italy where she completed a Masters Degree in Space Engineering at the University La Sapienza in Rome. Her career in space started as a Propulsion Test Engineer (more commonly known as rocket science) at the European Space Agency (ESA). A stint at TNO, the Netherlands Organisation for Applied Scientific Research followed before CubeSat Development at the University of Adelaide. Flavia then founded LaunchBox with Matt Pearon with a clear mission to further Australia’s space industry and engage young people in STEM careers. This led to the creation of their second venture together, Fleet Space Technologies.
