Paper Abstract

The Leostar spacecraft family is able to support data message communications, position-reporting, and voice communications for mobile users. The satellites are sufficiently small for launch by such systems as Pegasus and Scout, as well as by large launch vehicles, in either residual-space or multiple-launch configurations. Low costs are achieved through simple, standardized, off-the-shelf component-employing design practices.
