Tema: Small Satellites and Earth Observation. The UPC NanoSat program

Breve Currículo do Prof. Adriano

Prof. Adriano Camps was born in Barcelona, Spain, in 1969. He received the degree in Telecommunications Engineering and Ph.D. degree in Telecommunications Engineering from the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC), Barcelona, Spain, in 1992 and 1996, respectively. In 1991 to 1992, he was at the ENS des Télécommunications de Bretagne, France, with an Erasmus Fellowship. Since 1993, he has been with the Electromagnetics and Photonics Engineering Group, Department of Signal Theory and Communications, UPC, where he was first Assistant Professor, Associate Professor in 1997, and Full Professor since 2007.

His research interests are focused in microwave remote sensing, with special emphasis in microwave radiometry by aperture synthesis techniques and remote sensing using signals of opportunity (GNSS-R). He has published over 183 papers in peer-reviewed journals, 6 book chapters, 1 book, and more than 397 international conference presentations, holds 10 patents, and has advised 23 Ph. D. Thesis students (+ 8 on-going), and more than 120 final project and M.Eng. Theses. According to Publish or Perish (Google Scholar) his publications have received more than 6178 citations, and his h-index is 31 (Thompson Reuters) or 39 (Google Scholar).

Prof. Adriano Camps is currently the Scientific Coordinator of the CommSensLab "María de Maeztu" Excellence Research Unit, he co-led the Remote Sensing Lab ( and co-leads the UPC NanoSat Lab ( He will be co-chair of IGARSS 2020 and in 2017 and 2018 President of the IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing Society.

Talk: Small Satellites and Earth Observation. The UPC NanoSat program

Today, space is experiencing a revolution: from large space agencies, multimillion dollar budgets, and big satellite missions to spin-off companies, moderate budgets, and fleets of small satellites. Some have called this the “democratization” of space, in the sense that it is now more accessible than it was just a few years ago. To a large extent, this revolution has been fostered on one side by the standardization of the platforms’ mechanical interfaces, and on the other side by the technology developments coming from mobile communications.  Standard platform’s mechanical interfaces have led to standard orbital deployers, and new launching capabilities. The technology developed for cell phones has brought more computing resources, with less power consumption and volume.

Small satellites are used as pure technology demonstrators, for targeted scientific missions, mostly Earth Observation, and they are starting to enter in the field of communications, as huge satellite constellations are now becoming more possible.

In this lecture, the most widely used nano/microsats form factors, and its main applications will be first introduced. Then, the main Earth Observation techniques will be briefly presented, and those suitable for small satellites will be presented in more detail. Finally, the nanosat program at the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC) will be described, as well as the current trends in Earth Observation with Small Satellites.
