Very Low Earth Orbits (VLEO) are increasingly seen as a new orbit regime for new small communication satellites that operate as part of a large constellation. Due to the high drag these orbits with altitudes between 100 and 400 km are considered "self-cleaning" but at the same time it poses significant technological challenges. This presentation addresses material challenges, specifically atomic oxygen erosion and material aging due to ultra violet radiation.
