Completed Technology Project

Project Introduction

The Nodes mission will explore issues associated with the command and control of multi-spacecraft swarms by: 1) relaying ground commands through one satellite to the second satellite, 2) collecting and relaying science data from each satellite to the ground station, and 3) autonomously determining which of the two satellites is best suited to control the space network and relay data to the ground.
