The cost and schedule advantages small satellites have over larger
legacy systems have been studied, but there has been very little
experimentation performed to determine whether small satellites can
actually deliver the capabilities of larger spacecraft. To date, a
desired operational capability has not been fully realized by a
scalable satellite design. Advances in sensor technology have led
to significant reductions in size, weight, and power (SWaP)
presenting an opportunity to exploit the evolution of space
operations by using small satellites to perform specific missions.
This paper describes a methodology that maps a specific set of
large space vehicle capabilities to CubeSats. The process examines
the utility of advanced sensors.
