A new, independent study found that all 1,078 smallsats on commercial launches in the last five years experienced delays, with a median delay of 128 days.

What caused these delays? Bryce found that 40 percent of all smallsat delay days were attributed to delays in the primary payload and 34percent were launch vehicle-related. Less than 1percent of all smallsat delay days were caused by weather.

Bryce will develop an integrated action plan to address barriers to the growth of the LEO economy, while other selected companies will seek to raise the technological readiness level of their products and move them to market.
