Paper Abstract

The paper examines the application of small satellites for water cycle experiments, giving attention to alternative satellite configurations, subsystems requirements, attitude control requirements, and launch strategies. Particular emphasis is placed on the attitude and orbit control, which will be low-cost while providing the high attitude precision required by earth-observing sensors. The LEOSTAR configuration for water cycle experiments is considered.
