International Training Course on Small Satellite Missions

This is event is available for participation on an ongoing basis
English

In small satellites, payloads with a mass of just a few kilograms, are able to perform measurements that were done with tens of kilograms a few years ago. The fast and cheap development of microsatellites also makes them a suitable platform for technology evaluation and provides opportunities to test new systems in space with low cost, less risk and short time.
