9:00 a.m. to
10:30 a.m.:
Panel: Implications of a Revolution: Smallsats, Cubesats and Constellations
New Generation Space Leaders
Separate Reg. or Purchase
Location: West Ballroom

Considering the rapid growth in the number of smallsats/cubesats launched over the past several years, and the fact that more than 140 satellites with masses less than 10kg were launched in 2014, it is clear that this segment of the space industry is attracting a great deal of interest. This panel will address the past successes and shortfalls of design, development, and implementation, as well as looming opportunities, technical challenges, and future implications of launching smallsats.
