NANOSAT Employment: A Theoretical CONOPS for Space Object Identification

NANOSAT Employment: A Theoretical CONOPS for Space Object Identification published on

Authored by Naval Postgraduate School

Space Situational Awareness and Space Object Identification are vital to discovering and assessing space-based threats. The current ground-based mission architecture and operational concept do not provide enough detailed information on space objects to give planners and strategists a true picture of the space order of battle. This thesis looks at the possibility of using space-based assets, based on the CubeSat standard, to perform these missions to a higher level of quality. How this system would be folded into the current space systems operational concept is analyzed, as well as some recommendations for further study.
