Precision Attitude Control, Innovation in Small Companies and DARPA
Dan Hegel, Director of Advanced Development, Blue Canyon Technologies
Small companies may have more opportunity to be flexible in working out problems and addressing solutions. They can bring a lot of innovation to the table, especially when there is a need for speed. But it requires a staff to be more interdisciplinary and take on many roles. Listen to Dan Hegel talk about the challenges of innovation in a small satellite business. Learn about precision attitude control for CubeSats and how Blue Canyon’s capability has been leveraged to support NASA programs all the way to Mars. Dan discusses technologies for improving weather forecasting, including the capability to peer through clouds to assess moisture. He also talks about some of the communication techniques small satellites are applying, such as the sharing of information between crosslinking satellites.
