Success Factor-based Framework for Undertaking Small Satellite Missions

This project aims to conduct a case study on the process of development of the South Australian Government’s first satellite mission, Kanyini.

The proposed research will capture the issues, activities, challenges and opportunities for improvement the process of conception, design, manufacture, testing, launch and operation of small satellite missions and identify learnings that will guide future missions and process improvements. The proposal given here covers the space mission’s development up until completion of ground qualification testing.

A second follow-on project will follow the mission through its launch and on-orbit operations.
