Smallsats are launched for a variety of missions ranging from remote sensing and technology development, to communications and scientific research. They are launched by governments, military, commercial operators and academic institutions. C6 Launch customers are those developing nano and CubeSat sized payloads – low cost, light, cheap and relatively easy to build. These smallsats have shorter lifespans, usually 1-5 years vs. 15 years or more for hardened, multi-ton large satellites. In the last 10 years, their use has transitioned – today most of the smallest satellites are being used for commercial purposes. Nano and CubeSats are frequently used for research and experimentation, as they allow new technologies to be tested and demonstrated on a small scale and in zero gravity. The common factor for all potential customers is the urgent need to get into space as quickly as possible, to conduct research or deliver the intended service.
