    Title

    25th IAA/IISL Scientific-Legal Roundtable: The new age of small satellite missions (Invited Papers only)

    Description

    The trend towards building small satellites that are smaller, faster, better and cheaper was a reaction to falling industry budgets in the late Nineties. The scientific community awoke to the capabilities and advantages that small satellites hold for existing and new space applications. Twenty years on, the number of small satellites in operation calls for increased regulatory attention. The pattern of constructing and launching small satellites within a short time-scale continues unabated. This session looks at the subject from a technical perspective, alongside the relevant economic, policy and regulatory aspects. The papers will provide a coherent picture of the status quo and enable future prospects for this group of satellites to be mapped out. The Round Table hosts invited papers only, and is designed to facilitate interdisciplinary debate around the subject.
