    Title

    Access to Space for Small Satellite Missions

    Description

    A key challenge facing the viability and growth of the small satellite community is affordable and reliable space access. This is achieved through dedicated launches, ride-shares, piggyback launches, and spacecraft propulsion technologies to reach final operational orbit. Topics of interest for this session include utilization of dedicated launches, ride-share systems, auxiliary payload systems, separation and dispenser systems, and small spacecraft sub-system development that will enable efficient small satellite access to space and orbit change (e.g. propulsion systems). Includes lessons learned from users on technical and programmatic approaches. For a discussion of small launchers concepts and operations, please refer to session D2.7.
