The Cover: For over 40 years,the APL Space Department has been developing spacecraft and instruments for NASA and DoD. As a rest, the Laboratory has nurtured technologies that have a high state of maturity and can often be considered ready for technology transfer. The Technology Transfer for Space Applications Initiative focuses on the development of new spacecraft as demonstrated by the “microsat” concept shown on the cover, which can address the critical challenges facing the miniaturization of future spacecraft. (Cover design by Kenneth R. Moscati.)
