In this type of system, each satellite operates in a manner similar to a repeater in a cellular communications system. Some miniaturized satellites are placed in elongated (elliptical) orbits. Miniaturized satellites can be classified according to mass in kilograms (kg) or weight in pounds (lb). A microsatellite (or microsat) masses between 10 kg and 500 kg, a weight range of 22 pounds (lb) to 1100 lb. A nanosatellite (or nanosat) masses between 1 kg and 10 kg (2.2 lb …
