Australian ride-share satellite so that industry and researchers can use to test and prove the functionality of their tech.


Funded by the NSW government, Waratah Seed is a pilot space qualification project to launch NSW-developed space technology into orbit to test and prove functionality. The project is focused on developing the NSW space sector in particular, and the Australian space industry as a whole.

Having won joint 1st prize in the Waratah Seed WS-1 Payload Competition, Spiral Blue has been awarded a ride-share slot for our edge computer, Space Edge-1 (SE-1) on board a 6U CubeSat, launching late 2023.
