Title: JPL Rapid Mission Architecture Neptune-Triton-KBO Study Final Report
Primary Author: Mark Marley
Institution: Ames Research Center
Date: February 1, 2010
Summary: This JPL Rapid Mission Architecture (RMA) study was not a mission concept study of a single mission, but instead was an architectural-level study of a set of missions to the Neptune system and, for some, continued travel to a Kuiper Belt Object (KBO). It was commissioned by three Planetary Science Decadal Survey Panels: Giant Planets, Satellites, and Primitive Bodies, whose diverse sets of science priorities made tailoring architectures to the science priorities particularly challenging.
Panel Selection: Giant Planets
