    Title

    20th SYMPOSIUM ON SMALL SATELLITE MISSIONS

    Description

    "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 if they weigh less than 10 kg; and pico or cubesats 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 2013, 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. Abstracts highlighting ingenuity or innovation are preferred. Where possible, abstracts should have a wide interest in the community and include transferable knowledge or lessons learned. This is in keeping with our commitment to meeting the needs of the small satellite community. This Symposium will be accepting submissions for oral presentations only.
