STARLING - NASA Satellite

NASAs Starling mission is advancing the readiness of various technologies for cooperative groups of spacecraft - also known as distributed missions, clusters, or swarms. Starling will demonstrate technologies to enable multipoint science data collection by several small spacecraft flying in swarms. The six-month mission will use four CubeSats in low-Earth orbit to test four technologies that let spacecraft operate in a synchronized manner without resources from the ground.
