CubeSats are a simple, low-cost option for developing quickly-deployable satellites, however, the tradeoff for these benefits is a small physical size, which restricts the CubeSat's solar panels' size and thus the available power budget and stored energy reserves. These power/energy limitations restrict the CubeSat's functionality and data processing capabilities, which makes leveraging CubeSats for compute-intensive missions challenging. Additionally, increasing sensor capabilities due to… CONTINUE READING
