Paper Abstract

The objective of the TECHSTARS initiative is to examine the architectures associated with small space systems and to incorporate the advanced technologies required for the 1990's. The TECHSTARS program comprises a line of small satellites and ground systems for scientific, commercial, civil, and military applications. The TECHSTARS satellites weigh from 100 to 500 pounds and have significant onboard processing capabilities. The spacecraft, the ground systems, and technology development in the TECHSTARS program are addressed here.
