Cahn Litigation Services is skilled and experienced at identifying satellite technology experts to provide expert witness services for litigation matters, and is called upon by attorney clients to locate nanosatellite expert witnesses with specific knowledge in systems, technology, and the global small satellite market. A nanosatellite expert witness typically has a background in space exploration, aerospace engineering, satellite imagery, satellite communication, space science, and/or the small satellite market or microsatellite market.
A nanosatellite, or nanosat, is a satellite weighing less than 10 kilograms. Artificial satellites vary in size and cost and can be small enough to fit in your hand or as massive as the International Space Station. The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) categorizes satellites according to mass:
Nanosatellites are increasingly capable of performing commercial missions that previously required a microsatellite. Companies with a high market share in nanosatellite and microsatellite technology, development, and manufacturing include AAC Clyde Space, Axelspace Corporation, Berlin Space Technologies, Dynetics, GomSpace, Innovative Solutions in Space, L3Harris, Lockheed Martin, NanoAvionics, Northrop Grumman, RUAG, Satellogic, Sierra Nevada Corporation, Sky and Space Global, SpaceQuest, Pumpkin Inc., Surrey Satellite Technology Limited, and Tyvak. The small satellite market size and growth rate has increased mainly to due to the desire for reduced costs versus heavier and larger satellites. A small satellite requires smaller and less expensive launch vehicles and can be launched in multiples.
Example cases requiring nanosatellite expert witness service involve intellectual property, such as patent infringement litigation, inter partes review in the PTAB, or trade secret disputes. Litigation support by a nanosatellite expert witness could include reverse engineering, expert report, expert opinion, and expert testimony at deposition and at trial. Clients may also seek a space industry expert in space exploration or small satellite technology for pre-litigation consulting work.
