    Title

    Joint Session between IAA and IAF for Small Satellite Propulsion Systems

    Description

    This session will pay particular attention to propulsion systems and associated technologies as an enabler to efficient small satellite access to space and orbit change. Papers are invited discussing the particular challenges of design, manufacture, testing, operations and technological developments of small satellite propulsion systems, and the challenges of obtaining high performance within a small volume and mass. The scope includes chemical and electrical propulsion systems for major orbit changes, fine orbit control and maintenance, and end-of-life disposal. For papers with an emphasis on the small satellite and its system design, refer to other B4 sessions. For a focus on other propulsion systems and technologies, refer to other C4 sessions.
