Details of this end-to-end study would be presented in a comprehensive way, explaining the scientific and technical motivations of the study, the way it was run, and its outcome. The goal is to put together a reference document that could next be used by ESA, CNES and other space agencies for assessing the improvement that a low-inclined nanosatellite would bring to the on-going ESA Swarm mission. It is also anticipated that as a further outcome of this study, a number of scientific contributions could be published separately in the scientific literature.
