Objectives and Applications The overall objective of the UNIFORM project is to field a functional satellite constellation and ground station network that will yield usable data at a fraction of the price of commercially built satellites. More broadly, the project organizers expect UNIFORM to energize Japan's capacity for building microsatellites and spread that know-how throughout Asia through international cooperation. This network approach has the potential to change the space industry in the near future.
