The Space Autonomous Mission for Swarming and Geolocation with Nano-satellites (SAMSON), is a Technion led satellite mission with support by the Israeli space industries. The project consists of launching a satellite cluster, the first ever in space history. The satellites will function and communicate autonomously, manage a coordinated cluster without any instructions from earth, and will be operated by an operating system that is developed at Rafael and the Technion especially for the project.
