CubeSats…is there anything they can’t do?

Spire announces commercial WeatherSat constellation.

This is a fascinating idea: take 100 6U CubeSats, and apply GPS Radio Occultation to measure the atmosphere. They anticipate that they’ll collect 5X more data by the end of this year than the 20 legacy satellites that are in orbit now.

I’d be really interested in the orbits these CubeSats will be in…this is such a good idea that they could put NOAA out of business.
