SatNews Recognizes An Evolution In The Satellite Industry + Proactively Creates An Event ...SmallSat Symposium™ 

[SatNews] Small satellites are a development that have evolved from their creation in college classes, garages and kids' projects to advancing to currently assist the military and government in sophisticated and life-saving enterprises. 

Satellites that fit in the palm of your hand—to some the size of a breadbox and microwave oven—these small satellites share the same responsibilities as their much larger counterparts.

Ten years ago the term “small satellite” could have as easily been a term of judgment as much as it was a term to describe a then emerging market.  Today we can no longer call the small satellite market small.

Small Sats are in the daily news, and the headline below is found in today's Satnews.com;
