Abstract
The PegaStar small satellite platform combines functions that are common to both satellites and launch vehicles (guidance and control, power, communications and data systems), thereby eliminating the cost and weight of duplicate systems and allowing users to launch heavier and more sophisticated platforms at lower cost. PegaStar's design is based on the satellite bus integrated into the Pegasus air-launched vehicle; the PegaStar for remote sensing missions aboard the Taurus booster will involve only modest modification of the current PegaStar design.
