      TechSat21 is sponsored by the Air Force Research Laboratory Space Vehicles Directorate and the Air Force Office of Scientific Research1. Its mission is to control a cluster of satellites that, when combined, create a “virtual satellite” with which to conduct various experiments in sparse aperture sensing and formation flying. Customers of the TechSat21 database include mission planners and system engineers. Mission Planners need information that allows them to make high level planning and scheduling decisions. System Engineers need information to predict satellite sub-system problems and conduct satellite design and performance trade studies. This paper describes those users and the project database.
