CubeSats and Small Satellites

Description

CubeSats and small satellites have seen incredible growth in the last two decades. CubeSats, in particular, which were originally conceived for use in student education have found uses for bona fide science, technology demonstration, commercial remote sensing, military, and other missions. The use and capabilities of small satellites, generally, have grown with electronics miniaturization, secondary payload launch availability, and other factors driving growth.

This special issue seeks to attract papers on all aspects of small satellites. In particular, papers focusing on completed missions (or missions that are in-process, but for which mission objectives have been completed), novel educational techniques, and paradigm-shifting proposed missions are especially welcome.

Potential topics include but are not limited to the following:

  • CubeSat and small satellite missions and technologies
  • Aerospace engineering (and related field) education using small satellites and CubeSats
  • Mission assurance for CubeSats and small satellites
  • Small satellite and CubeSat future mission designs and analysis
  • Policy issues related to CubeSats and small satellites
  • Science performed using small satellites and CubeSats
  • Dedicated and shared CubeSat and small satellite launch hardware and service approaches
  • Propulsion for small satellites and CubeSats
  • Communications for CubeSats and small satellites
  • Other small satellite and CubeSat subsystems
  • Mission operations and ground control for CubeSats and small satellites
