Build Microsats, Get Paid



For a good time, read the Navy 2002 Small Business Innovative Research
(SBIR) solicitation, particularly:

	N02-062 Ocean Data Telemetry Microsat Link

	"Objective: To perform the system design and development
	of a low-cost space borne constellation of microsatellites
	to transmit commands and information and recover the
	stored oceanic and atmospheric data."

also

	"There are significant low-cost opportunities to launch
	microsats into low earth orbit using excess capacity on
	Arianne and soon with the upcoming U.S. Evolved Expendable
	Launch Vehicle (EELV) rockets."

It would be nice if someone in the AMSAT community could take advantage
of this opportunity.  Alternatively, in would be pretty neat if AMSAT
could respond.  (Unfortunately, the focus appears to be on electronic
and mechanical design, so I am not in much of a position to respond.)
