13th IAA Symposium on Small Satellites for Earth Observation

The global pandemic situation unfortunately affects the 13th IAA Symposium on Small Satellites for Earth Observation, as it influenced other symposia already. The organizers currently review if and how the symposium can take place. Please remain patient, any news will be shared here and via mail.

The great number of scientists, engineers, and managers who participated in the hitherto existing symposia reflects the high interest in the use of small satellites for dedicated missions applied to earth observation, from scientific earth observation missions to technology demonstration missions.

These types of missions can be conducted relatively quickly and inexpensively and provide increased opportunity for access to space

The spacecraft bus and instruments can be based either on optimized off-the-shelf systems, with little or no requirements for new technology, or on new high-technology systems. Thus a new class of advanced small satellites, including autonomously operating “intelligent” satellites may be created, opening new fields of application for scientific purposes as well as operational, public and commercial services.

The symposium will provide a forum for scientists, engineers and managers to exchange information about planned and on-going programs and missions, and present new ideas, covering small satellite mission objectives as well as technology and management aspects for dedicated earth observation satellites.
