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.
