Serious reflection on the content of last year’s AIAA/USU Conference on Small Satellites has generated tremendous excitement about innovative new space missions. The possibility for revolutionary small satellite missions is now on the near horizon due to the host of new technologies that will soon be available. For this year’s 16th Annual Conference we will focus on these new “breakthrough” technologies and the mission applications they will facilitate by encouraging “out-of-the-box” thinking on new missions backed up by detailed descriptions of enabling breakthrough technologies, their potential, and status.
