PANEL: Small Sat Revolution Chaired by David Germroth (PACE)


This session will focus on the rise of smaller and cheaper satellites, which have become prominent in the current discussion about future capabilities to meet national security needs and the growing commercial demand for Geo-information.Innovators have proven that small satellites can be built quickly and affordably with capabilities which support essential mission interests such as acquiring high-definition video, providing climate information, tracking maritime assets, and assisting overall human-geo missions. The small-satellite revolution seems to be the catalyst for the formation of a new layer of information infrastructure and which is popularising the geo-information industry beyond the traditional consumer.
