Innovative Concepts for Exploration
Tuesday, July 27th 2021

Anchor 1

This session invites submission of abstracts that propose novel and highly innovative future mission concepts, scientific measurement instruments, as well as technologies for solar system exploration. This includes, but is not limited to, non-traditional entry, descent, and landing concepts, multi-sensor/multi-probe and swarm approaches for in-situ exploration of solar system bodies, innovative solutions for reducing mission risk and/or life cycle costs. Preference will be given to visionary and outside-the-box ideas that have a potential to significantly advance state of the art in current exploration approaches, capabilities or technologies.


Session Coordinators:

Dmitriy Shutin (DLR), Robert Dillman (NASA-Langley), Alena Probst (JPL)

Poster Session Coordinators:

Manuel Dominguez (UPC), Jacob Izraelavitz (JPL), Clara O'Farrell (JPL), Lin Li (NASA Langley)
