    Title

    Small Launchers: Concepts and Operations

    Description

    Discussion of existing, planned and future Launchers for small payloads ranging from 1500 kg to as low as 1 kg into Low Earth Orbit. Includes innovative solutions such as airborne systems, evolutions from sub-orbital concepts, combinations of existing / emerging elements and new elements, reusable, partially reusable and expendable concepts, and flexible, highly responsive concepts. Includes mission operations, design, development, and specific constraints. For discussion on small satellite missions not focused on launchers and their operations, please refer to session B4.5.
