|Abstract: ||A detailed Neptune aerocapture systems analysis and spacecraft design study was performed as part of NASA’s In-Space Propulsion Program. The primary objectives were to assess the feasibility of a spacecraft point design for a Neptune/Triton science mission. That uses aerocapture as the Neptune orbit insertion mechanism. This paper provides an overview of the science, mission and spacecraft design resulting from that study.|
