dc.description.abstractThe reduction in size of satellites is reaching at the range of femto-satellites, i.e. satellites less than 100 grams in mass. One of the key points to achieve such a reduc tion is to simplify the design of the satellite, bu t also to simplify their mission operation. In the present work, a sim plified method for responsive femto-satellite opera tions is presented which is able to deal with the main types of disaster management tasks. Then, a mission is e asy to program using a few default functionalities in everyone of a cooperative satellite swarm giving a list of coor dinates. The protocol is able to update the list for adaptive mi ssions which are based on coordinates. This feature would allow an easy control for the first responders when they are in the field in the beginning of an emergency. The se satellites could send real-time pictures to the first responde rs agents, without the need of a complex ground sta tion infrastructure, until the help arrives
