NASA To Develop Nano-Satellites

NASA’s new nano-satellites – The Mini AERCam prototype is just 7.5 inches in diameter and weighs only 10 pounds

NASA announced today that it will team with m2mi to develop very small satellites, called nano-sats which weigh between 11 to 110lb, for the development of telecommunications and networking services in space.

NASA says large groups of nano-satellites can be grouped in a constellation, that will be placed in low Earth orbit to offer new telecommunications and networking systems and services.NASA and m2mi will develop what they call fifth generation telecommunications and networking systems for TCP/IP-based networks and related services.
