    Title

    25th IAA 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 or cubesats if they weigh less than 10 kg; and picosats 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) missions, earth observation missions (B4.4), and exploration/commercialization of space beyond Earth orbit (B4.8), 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), and emerging and promising technologies (B4.6A and B4.6B). For IAC 2018, the Symposium will be continuing its reinvigorated Session B4.7 featuring Highly Integrated Distributed Systems in support of the delivery of global utilitarian services to end-users. Also continuing for IAC 2018 are two Joint Sessions: B4.5A-C4.8 Small Satellite Propulsion Systems and B4.9-GTS-5 Small Satellite Missions Global Technical Session. 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.
