This is Alén Space's blog for nanosatellites and space content. If you want to put your business idea in space and you are interested in the functionalities and potentials of small satellites and CubeSats, this is your place. More information avaliable upon request.
CubeSat payloads are the heart of missions in space. Without payloads, there would be no point in launching a small satellite, since from a practical point of view it would become an object orbiting the Earth with no function to perform.
When we talk about small satellite applications, we are basically answering this question: What are they for? It may seem like a simple and straightforward question, but books on the subject could be written.
If you intend to enter the New Space age to offer space IoT services with the help of small satellites, the last thing you want to read is probably an explanation of what IoT (Internet of Things) is, what M2M (Machine to Machine) communications are, or how many millions of connected devices there will be worldwide in 2030.
