Instrument advances are required to use small spacecraft platforms to accomplish NASA’s science that heretofore have required larger missions. The Science Instruments for Small Missions (SISM) study will investigate the state-of-the-art and gaps in instrument technologies applicable to small Earth and space missions. It will augment the Technology Roadmaps, particularly TA08: Science Instrument, Observatories, and Sensor Systems, with focus on instrument miniaturization and optimization.
The study aims to:
