4S symposium – Small Satellites Systems and Services

May 30, 2016 - June 3, 2016

The history of the 4S goes back to 1992 and has had an ever increasing international participation over the years. The maturity of the event is marked by the close cooperation with two other prominent Small Satellite conferences: The Symposium on Small Satellites for Earth Observation (IAA and DLR) and The Small Satellites Conference (AIAA and USU). The information synergies and idea exchange originating from these close links ensure high standard of contributions and a very wide attendance.

The 4S Symposium will be held in Valletta, Malta, from 30 May to 03 June 2016. The special topic of 2016, Small Satellites Go Viral!, will be addressed in a dedicated session on the first day of the event. As in previous years, the programme will also cover technical sessions: Mission and System Analysis; Applications such as Earth Observation, Science, Telecommunication and Navigation; New Technologies at system, sub-system and component level. A special session will be dedicated to access to space of Small Satellites, as launchers, platform cross-compatibility.
