Download Fact Sheet

The Aerospace Corporation continues to make cutting-edge advances in the capabilities of CubeSats, both in supporting technologies and in mission results. The technology roadmap for our AeroCube program includes significant developments in several areas, many of which enhance existing Aerospace capabilities, and some of which will extend into entirely new directions.

Over the next five years, Aerospace will develop and demonstrate several key enabling technologies with AeroCubes. The future program will focus on advanced autonomy and maneuverability, onboard processing using artificial intelligence, space networking technologies and traveling to higher orbits — including GEO — where the consequences of mission errors are much higher.
