    Technology Needs for Future Missions, Systems, and Instruments


    The third session includes invited and contributed talks about the technology challenges and plans required to enable breakthrough science objectives in: exoplanet detection and characterization; astronomy throughout the electromagnetic spectrum and using gravitational waves; space physics including fractional gravity regimes and heliophysics; fundamental physics including relativity; and outer solar system planetary science including gas giants, ice giants, complex planetary systems, primordial body populations, and ocean worlds. Topical focus includes measurement techniques, data types, performance requirements, instrument designs, mission concepts and systems, and associated technology developments.
