PocketQube Workshop 2018
Thursday, March 22 - Friday, March 23
PocketQubes are a relatively new form factor of very small satellites, comprising of one or more cubic units of approximately 5 cm. They are similar to the successful CubeSat form factor, but are one order of magnitude smaller and belonging to the class of picosatellites (100 g – 1000 g). They provide an excellent platform for demonstrating highly miniaturized space systems at low cost. In the future, vast networks of these tiny satellites may provide currently unforeseen applications. The PocketQube community today is relatively small and they are not yet specifically addressed at major conferences. The goal of this workshop is to offer a venue to foster collaboration and understanding on this emerging topic.
