What is Nanosatellite and Microsatellite?

  • Market Overview:

Nanosatellites and microsatellites are categories of small satellites used for various purposes, including Earth observation, communication, scientific research, and technology demonstration. They are characterized by their compact size, low weight, and relatively low cost compared to traditional larger satellites. Nanosatellites, as the name suggests, are the smallest category of satellites, typically weighing between 1 to 10 kilograms whereas microsatellites are slightly larger than nanosatellites and typically weigh between 10 to 100 kilograms.

Both nanosatellites and microsatellites benefit from advancements in miniaturization, electronics, and propulsion technologies, allowing them to perform tasks traditionally reserved for larger and more expensive satellites. They are often launched into orbit as secondary payloads aboard larger rockets or deployed from the International Space Station (ISS) using specialized deployment mechanisms.
