Metadata for Small Satellite Missions

An open, collaboratively-developed schema to support the future of space exploration.

MetaSat is a project to develop and prototype an open metadata schema to link data, software, and hardware from small satellite missions. To do this, Wolbach Library at the Center for Astrophysics is working with the small satellite community, the Libre Space Foundation and NASA’s Small Spacecraft Systems Virtual Institute to design and implement the first version of the schema.
