Autonomous CubeSat Swarms in LEO.


A 1U Cubesat is about 10 cm X 10 cm X 10cm and satellite weighing 1.33kg. An advantage of a Cubesat is the ease of manufacturing, low cost and easy scalability. Therefore, an autonomous Cubesat swarm (20 satellites) with swarming capability is proposed to be launched in LEO for remote sensing mission.
