Concept of Operation
- It is proposed that the UN Global-Sat
Constellation be transitioned and maintained as
an international consortium sharing the costs of
operating and maintaining the constellation.
- The operational concept requires partners in
the consortium to share segments’ architecture
and the level of participation is inherently
flexible as partner nations may choose whether
to build or buy a satellite, ground terminals,
and processing tools based on the information
and standards initially provided in the
- The UN Global-Sat Consortium would assign a
Technical Manager to design, build, launch,
demonstrate, and provide necessary training for
the Nano-satellites constellation.
- The Technical Manager could provide the
hardware and software designs and prototypes so
that commercial, profit, and/or non-profit
national / international space firms could
participate with government labs, universities,
technical institutes and others in order to
sustain and improve the program.
