dc.description.abstract The purpose of this report is to provide an initial reference document to support further definition of science community needs for small-RPS flight systems. It describes the most recent results of the ongoing NASA/DOE studies, and provides information for review by potential users that might take advantage of these types of power systems. This is extremely important since any future decision to proceed with the development of such units will require a strong identified need from the space science community and a well-defined set of power and operational requirements. NASA and DOE intend to use this document as a basis for soliciting information on additional small-RPS-enabled mission concepts, along with their respective power and operational requirements. This report is a first step in fleshing out a roadmap for potential future development and acquisition. en_US
