Joint Development of Innovative Small and Cube Satellites

Concept Note on joint development of innovative small & cube satellites created

The STWG, with contributions from member organizations, created a Concept Note on the joint development of innovative small & cube satellites, and its progress was reported during APRSAF-26. Click here to download the Concept Note.

To summarize the discussion to date, in consideration of current resources among member organizations, joint development will proceed (until around 2021) as follows:

  • Each potential participant will continue its own R&D; and
  • The secretariat of the STWG will continue to call for proposals for meaningful payloads on a target satellite(s)

When promising prospects have been obtained, the STWG secretariat will issue an official call for participants, and then the development discussion will be reactivated.
