CubeSats and small satellites are on the front line of the NewSpace revolution that has been emerging in recent years. A recent report by BIS Research projects the global nanosatellite market to be $6.35B by 2021 with a compound annual growth rate approaching 40%. Although the market and growth rate for this technology are promising, these goals will not be achieved without the fundamental technology of microwave and millimeter-wave components and subsystems. CubeSats and other small satellites are the leading edge for many new applications, providing low cost opportunities and chances to perform early testing of concepts on orbit. This workshop will discuss the required circuits, subsystems, microwave receivers and antenna technology. In addition, several applications will be described.
