Getting along with the satellite research we witness a paradigm shift especially in the context of global telecommunication channels. Traditional big multifunctional satellites will become complemented by distributed networked small satellites which have capabilities to self-organize. These small satellites can thus cover a much larger area which leads to a better temporal and spatial resolution by a team of distributed satellites. Networks of satellites can provide communication everywhere. Small satellite will be appropriate in the context of telemedicine, Industry 4.0 or the monitoring of pollution. The technology is highly interesting for places that are not connected to classical communication connections like desserts, mountains, on the see (oil platforms, offshore wind parks) or smaller villages in poor countries. These Satellite systems have potential to increase efficiency and reduce production costs. The terms of use are broad – from industrial plants to medicine.
