Commercial development phase, the United States pushed the White House plans to build a large satell sexinse

The White House commercial development phase, planning a push to foster small satellite industry – Sohu technology [Technews] in order to support the United States recently new technology developing more rapid commercial space industry, the White House recently announced a plan to promote the development of small satellites, the program called "Harnessing the Small Satellite Revolution", the purpose is to promote the government institutions including NASA and private enterprise cooperation, in order to improve the efficiency and practicability of small commercial satellites. The weight from a few ounces to hundreds of pounds, ranging from small satellites, in addition to providing network services, but also can monitor the traffic space, and for planetary scientists it is a valuable research tool, so the White House hopes to seek ways to increase the yield of small satellites, but also to find out why these small satellites can be brought to the United States the government’s benefit. In this program, NASA is expected to cost $25 million, small satellite data and information related to purchase private aerospace companies collected, and the NASA is currently seeking to contribute to the inner earth science research information, such as detailed images recorded on the surface of the planet, the technology will also get additional investment $5 million to strengthen the small satellite research and development. In addition, Ames research center will be in NASA’s (Ames Research Center) in the establishment of new research units, called "Small Spacecraft Virtual Institute", NASA and private aerospace companies to find the best use of small satellite manufacturing and technology, will also try to make commercial small satellite missions to join NASA. Small satellite recently has been private aerospace companies like satellite, due to the weight and the cost much lower than the traditional manufacturing process, the traditional satellite usually need to spend a few years time, and a rocket carrying a satellite only once, and the small satellite in contrast, manufacturing process than the traditional satellite greatly shortened many, and satellite with a rocket to fly in space. Fortune in the United States San Francisco satellite ventures (Planet), the planet company main bets in the small satellite technology, the company by former NASA scientists set up in 2010, aims to establish a small satellite cheaper to form satellite network, satellite data and grab the effect, it is worth mentioning that the synchronous transmission of the satellite the speed of the planet’s image, faster than other satellite. At present, the planet has about 62 small satellites in the near earth orbit, and plans to eventually put hundreds of satellites in orbit, every day to capture the earth’s fine image.
