SMART-1: The first Small Mission for Advanced Research in Technology

SMART-1 is the first of the SMART series introduced in the ESA Scientific Programme to prepare the technology for future Cornerstone missions. SMART-1 demonstrated the use of Solar Electric Primary Propulsion (SEPP). SEPP will have applications for the Mercury cornerstone. Future deep space missions, such as a Solar Corona Probe/Polar Orbiter, the IR interferometric cornerstone, and LISA will benefit from the timely development of SEPP technology. Several other technologies are being tested on SMART-1, involving spacecraft subsystems, SEPP diagnostics, and instruments that will be useful for a wide range of future missions.
