Small Satellite Working Group
A paradigm shift is occurring in the satellite industry. Small satellites are maturing to offer agility, affordability, resiliency and high resolution imagery. Simultaneously, national security leaders are examining the potential threats posed by adversaries to our legacy space-based assets.
The Small Satellites (SmallSats) Working Group is established to inform and educate the USGIF stakeholder community on the user needs for – and technical capabilities of – small satellites and associated tasking, processing, exploitation and dissemination (TPED) systems.
Co-chairs: Rob Zitz, Leidos, and George Flick, Noblis ESI
