Will IDRS change the Way We Think of and Use LEO Satellites Today?

SmallSats and CubeSats in Low-Earth-Orbit (LEO) have for many years been limited by the short ground station overpass time (around ten minutes per overpass). The use of LEO satellites for real-time applications have therefore been restricted. Delayed data may be acceptable in some cases, but in others, the delay has a negative impact on the use and relevance of transmitted data. The limited overpass time causes satellites to store and...
