    Title

    Small Distributed Space Missions

    Description

    The session will be a forum for space missions relying on synergic use of small space vehicles, thus including constellations and formations, in either the cases of allocation of different functions on different vehicles or of distribution of all functions all across the system. Various aspects of distributed space missions will be addressed, including: new arising applications; design, integration, and operation of distributed sensors; relative GNC; advanced concept of spacecraft design (modularity, autonomy, standardisation, plug & play components) to achieve adequate performance at an acceptable cost; novel specific technologies. It is recommended that, in addition to discussing relevant theoretical aspects, potential contributors focus on practical challenges and potential solutions. Therefore, examples of missions or projects implementing in full or in part the distributed mission concept are particularly welcome.
