In the 16-year history of the AIAA/USU Conference on Small Satellites it has become evident that the world’s small satellite developers have played a significant role in the advancement of space knowledge. While open-minded thinking and unbiased opinions have fostered the development of scores of revolutionary space technologies and formed the foundation for current and future space missions, access to space continues to be a stumbling block for engineers and scientists. The 17th Annual AIAA/USU Conference on Small Satellites will focus on investigating forward-looking technologies that will not only allow future missions to be conceived, but also launched into reality.
