PC 2014 Small Satellite MIssions Print
21st IAA Symposium on Small Satellite Missions, Toronto, Canada, IAC 2014, 29 September-03rd October 2014

« Small Satellite Missions » refers to the class of missions conducted using satellites weighing less than 1000 kg. For clarity, we further classify small satellites as microsats if they weigh less than 100 kg; nanosats or cubesats if they weigh less than 10 kg; and picosats if they weigh less than 1 kg.
This Symposium, organised by the International Academy of Astronautics (IAA), addresses Small Satellite missions and projects in Science, Exploration, and Technology for government, industry, and academic programmes.
The Symposium scope encompasses space science (B4.2), earth observation (B4.4), and exploration (B4.8) missions, as well as the cross-cutting topics of small satellite programmes in developing countries (B4.1), cost-effective operations (B4.3), affordable and reliable space access (B4.5), emerging and promising technologies (B4.6A and B4.6B), and cross-platform compatibility applications and standards (B4.7A).  For IAC 2014, the Symposium is continuing the topic of Small Distributed Space Missions (B4.7B), to be held in cooperation with B4.7A as a possible implementation of modular, reconfigurable, rapid systems.

The 15th UN/IAA Workshop on Small Satellite Programmes at the Service of Developing Countries is organized jointly by the United Nations Office for Outer Space Affairs (UN/OOSA) and the International Academy of Astronautics (IAA). It shall review the needs that could be satisfied and results achieved by developing nations through using small satellites. National space plans and examples of application results and benefits shall be included. Small satellite programmes in the Americas would be of particular interest to the session. The workshop shall also review the results of international cooperation, technology transfer, lessons learned and the extent to which these efforts have contributed to the space maturity of developing countries.
