Episode 1: Satellite Technology Today—From SmallSats to Launch Vehicles

Satellite Technology Today—From SmallSats to Launch Vehicles

The first U.S. weather satellite weighed 270 pounds. Its size made most people associate the word “satellite” with either a moon, a sputnik, or a modern rig with rocket motors, solar panels, and antennae. Sixty years later, satellites are more common. They provide high-speed Internet, support global communications and GPS capabilities, and power our smartphones. Modern satellites are more powerful and flexible, do more, cost less, and get to orbit faster. They provide better accuracy, and improved anti-jamming capabilities, and, more recently, they even connect to the wider network of satellites orbiting Earth. Investments in satellite and space technology are growing not only in commercial markets, but in military and civil ones as well. Join us and hear about the cutting-edge technology enabling this revolution.
