Title: Report of the Microspacecraft Panel
Authors: Jones, Ross M.
Connolly, Denis
Issue Date: May-1992
Citation: Proceedings of the Microtechnology and Applications to Space Systems Workshop
Pasadena, CA
Abstract: These findings and recommendations are based solely on the material presented during the Microtechnologies and Applications to Space Systems Workshop, 5/27 and 28/92, and the personal knowledge and judgment of the panel members. These findings and recommendations represent the consensus views of the committee. This mission utility of microspacecraft for NASA space science missions was not an issue that the panel addressed. For the purposes of this panel, a microspacecraft was defined to be a fully functional spacecraft, intended for use on NASA space science missions, whose mass is on the order of 10 kg. During the panel discussions the microspacecraft mass definition was used somewhat loosely to be not less than 10 kg but certainly not more than 100, dependent upon the mission requirements.
