Session 3 The Scientific Uses of CubeSats

Monday, 23 January 2017: 4:00 PM-5:30 PM
4C-2 (Washington State Convention Center )
Host: 14th Conference on Space Weather

This session focuses on the role of the emerging CubeSat platform in the Space Weather Enterprise. Access to space has been made more available with the advent of CubeSats as evidenced by the 400+ launches in recent years. CubeSats range in size and capability and offer the opportunity for multipoint observations. Recent studies by the National Academy and NASA’s Living With a Star Program on the science and value of CubeSats, and NSF’s successful CubeSat program and the popular SmallSat conference demonstrate the strong interest across the community.
