During the initial years of the development of space technologies, the main focus of companies was on developing heavy and large sized satellites and vehicles capable of launching the satellites. Over a period of time, there have been various developments in technology which have created a huge demand for small size satellites as well as cost effective launch solutions. Presently, with the focus being more on deploying small satellite constellations for varied applications, technologies in the launch vehicle market has led to an advancement to successfully place satellites into destined orbit.

More than 3,600 small satellites, including nano, micro, and pico, are expected to be launched over the course of the next ten years.

Globally, many nations are keen to launch their own small satellites and are collaborating with space-faring agencies. With the increase in the capabilities of small satellites, the space industry is developing their increasing strategic utility, thus, motivating various stakeholders including government, space agencies and private companies, to develop dedicated and next-generation small satellite launch vehicles. Presently, small satellites are being increasingly used for weather forecast, surveillance, earth observation, navigation, communication, meteorology, and other purposes.

BIS Research Analysis:

Of late, other missions like human space exploration activities or development of new space stations have also created a demand for the high frequency of launches. Hence, there has been a growing interest among researchers and the scientific community to design and develop the launch vehicles capable of multiple launches and positioning small satellites into different orbits at low cost. A major advantage with small satellites is that they allow business and scientific establishments, educational institutions, non-spacefaring states, non-profit organizations, and even individuals an easy access to space. However, the major challenges for small satellite manufacturers are availability of space for their payload in heavy launch vehicles and long queues for the same.
