Small Satellites, Big Market: Boundaries to Space-Based Earth Observation Rapidly Disappearing

For what SmallSats lack in size, they more than make up for in quantity and breadth of coverage, and that goes beyond just their physical dimensions. Along with unmanned aerial systems (UASs or drones), SmallSats (which have several related subsets such as cubesats, nanosats, microsats and others) seem to dominate headlines and conversations in Earth-observation industries and...

NASA’s CYGNSS Mission to Launch Eight Small Satellites for Hurricane Observation

HAMPTON, Va., Sept. 18, 2014—Hurricane track forecasts have improved in accuracy by about 50 percent since 1990, but in that same period there has been essentially no improvement in the accuracy of intensity forecasts. NASA has funded a new mission using a constellation of eight small satellites carried to low-Earth orbit on a single launch
