Constellation Precursor

A constellation precursor is a single satellite, or a small group launched into orbit to test and validate the technologies and systems required for a larger, more complex satellite constellation. It is essentially a “proof of concept” mission that demonstrates the feasibility of the planned constellation and helps mitigate risks associated with its deployment. Constellation precursors are often used to develop communication, earth observation, connectivity, space situational awareness, and navigation satellite constellations.
