PARADIGM (Platform for Autonomous Rendezvous and Docking with Innovative GN&C Methods) is a pico-scale satellite program, in cooperation with Texas A&M University and sponsored by NASA JSC, that aims to separate and dock two 5-inch cube satellites. The first generation of the satellites will collect GPS data in two orbits about the Earth and downlink them back to their respective ground stations within two months and will launch in Spring 2009 on the space shuttle.
