Such measurements are useful to study the effect of solar storms on radio communication, GPS or electrical grids, or the flow of magma under Earth’s crust, for instance. Quantum technologies, such as this magnetometer, will lead to smaller, more energy efficient, and more sensitive sensors for space applications.

Characterize sources and sinks of energetic particles in the radiation belts from a near polar low earth orbit focusing on microbursts measurements at high latitudes to supplement Van Allen Probe measurements at low latitudes and the CRAND source for the inner radiation belts. Provide flight heritage for instruments and instrument components.

CUBESAT INDEX TABLES

NewSpace Index (newspace.im) includes microsatellites and smallsats too

NOTES

Database includes and term nanosatellite implies them all:

Longer description about CubeSats and PocketQubes can be found here.

Database does not include (usually):

  • Femtosatellites (10 g to 100 g) and chipsats.
  • Suborbitally launched satellites.
  • Satellites only in idea or concept phase. Often difficult to determine.
  • Data is since 1998. There were at least 21 nanosatellites launched in the 1960s (Vanguard, OSCAR, ERS) and 1 in 1997.

Comments:

  • Usually waiting before fully adding new large constellations to gain more proof of active development, fundraising and first launches.
  • There is plenty of non-public data (emails, COM parameters etc).
  • Can edit databases through fullscreen links, a menu will appear.
  • In some cases an educational guess has been made. Apologies for possible mistakes, please write about them.
  • "Mission type" and "Mission type description" are part of Space Taxonomy shared by Hector Guerrero-Padron from European Commission Space Policy and Research Unit in 2014.

SOURCES

Updating the databases every ∼2 months and Index Tables more frequently. Always careful to use trustworthy sources. Doing the best to keep track with changing statuses and plans assuming information is available.

Major update is reviewing at least the following sources:

  • Launch schedules such as Gunter's Space Page.
  • Frequency coordination statuses from IARU.
  • Public launch manifests.
  • News articles and social media posts collected between updates.
  • Presentations and proceedings from CubeSat related conferences.
  • Visiting websites of all listed and new companies.
  • Reentered nanosatellites from Space-Track.org.
  • Radio amateur blogs such as DK3WN SatBlog.

BACKGROUND

Early data was collected during EU FP7 NANOSAT project in 2013 - 2014, short for "Utilizing the potential of NANOSATellites for the implementation of European Space Policy and space innovation".
At the time the size was much smaller. Coordinators were pleased to see that work would continue and be considerably improved. No rules or restrictions were placed and there has been no official relation since then.
