INSERTING NEW TECHNOLOGY INTO SMALL MISSIONS

Dr. Leslie, J. Deutsch
2003 Acta Astronautica  
Luckily, there are methods for creating new technology and inserting it into faster-better-cheaper (FBC) missions. NASA has invested in many processes for technology development and infusion.  ...  However, in order to create many small missions, new technology must be developed, applied, and assimilated. These statements seem to contradict one another.  ...  In the old days, large missions developed the technology they needed. This does not work in the FBC era since no mission has enough discretionary investment capability.  ...
