What is nanosatellite and microsatellite?

Nanosatellite and microsatellite (NAM) are miniature artificial satellites that are used in space for various applications. They consist of an onboard computer, remote control unit, telemetry unit, and asynchronous communication channel connections. They have a short lifespan and integrate highly reliable electronic components. In addition, they retain similar capabilities and are more convenient to build, and cost-effective as compared to traditional satellites. They are widely employed in communication, earth observation and remote sensing, biological experiments, technology demonstration and verification, academic training, mapping and navigation, and reconnaissance. Nanosatellite and microsatellite are used in space observation programs, interplanetary missions, system testing in orbit, and biomedical research. They assist in the development of space programs and are widely employed in rapid responses to disasters, environmental management, asset tracking, and gathering timely information related to telemedicine. They provide a platform for training and research to countries wherein heavy investment in the space industry facilitates health and welfare needs. As a result, they find extensive applications in government, civil, energy and infrastructure, commercial, and defense sectors worldwide.
