_ Activities on Small Satellites

SSDL performs unique “hands-on” satellite design activities through the design and construction of IDEA the satellite for In-situ Debris Environmental Awareness. This work involves mission analysis, spacecraft system design as well as subsystem design problems. IDEA is planned to be launched on a H-IIA rocket in 2013 or later and intend to perform scientific investigations that will lead to a better understanding of the current debris environment.
