The small satellite market consists of the sale of small satellites by entities (organizations, partnerships, and sole proprietors) that refer to satellites that weigh less than 1,000 kg (2,204 pounds). Miniaturization of electrical hardware and the conversion of numerous hardware logics into software logics allow for mass and size reductions. Small satellites are created by small, highly engaged teams who work on them from conception to launch and operation. Small satellites’ weight is reduced even further by using lighter materials in mechanical systems and designing subsystems without redundancy.
