    Title

    Small Spacecraft for Deep-Space Exploration

    Description

    This session focuses on innovative small spacecraft designs, systems, missions and technologies for the exploration of space beyond Earth orbit. Target destinations for these miniaturized space probes include the Earth's Moon, Mars, small bodies and other deep-space destinations, as well as near Earth vicinity for necessary development and technology demonstration missions. Small exploration probes covered by this session may come in many different forms, including special-purpose miniature spacecraft, standard format small platforms such as cubesats, or other microsats, nanosats, picosats, etc. Topics include new and emerging technologies in miniaturized subsystems including propulsion, avionics, guidance navigation & control, power supply, communication, thermal management, and sensors and instruments. Main aspect on this session is on new and emerging systems and mission applications for deep-space exploration using small spacecraft.
