20th Annual Conference on Small Satellites
August 14-17, 2006
In the 20th year of the AIAA/USU Conference on Small Satellites, we look in the mirror
at what we have achieved over the past two decades and peer through the lens at what the
next two decades may bring. We will explore the progress and future of small satellites in
academic, science, military, commercial and international mission applications.
Our 2006 Conference will focus on the things that have led us to where we are today, as well
as where we should be focused if we want to be successful twenty years from now. From launch
vehicles to attitude control sensors, advances have been made that now enable a host of missions
we had never imagined 20 years ago. Even with these advances, our industry still faces challenges every day.
