Paper abstract (view online)

This workshop will focus on concepts for low-frequency radio astronomy missions that are enabled by cubesat technologies. We plan to consider all aspects of such missions, from the science goals to concept definitions to specific technical challenges. In particular, we plan to examine areas where recent advances in micro- and nano-satellite capabilities make new, more cost-effective science missions possible.

We expect that a primary result of the workshop will be to enhance and strengthen proposals from the low frequency radio astronomy community in response to future NASA (and other) mission opportunities.
