Satellite Manufacturing

Aboard the ## rockets that attempted a launch in 2015, there were ## spacecraft, down ##% from ## in 2014. Of the spacecraft intended for orbit in 2015, ## were nanosatellites weighing less than 10 kilograms (22 pounds), a type of satellite whose numbers have increased in recent years. The rise of nanosatellites has led to a doubling of the number of satellites deployed each year. In the decade from 2006–2015, the first seven years saw between ## and ## satellites launched to orbit each year.
