Disaggregation in Military Space Systems

Disaggregation refers to launching many small satellites with one or two (or a few) sensors instead of large, expensive satellites with many sensors. Speakers at the meeting included Peter Marquez of Orbital Sciences Corp. and the Marshall Institute, Bill Reiner of Boeing, Josh Hartman of the Horizons Strategy Group, and Marc Berkowitz of Lockheed Martin.
