Abstract

DESTINY: the Demonstration and Experiment of Space Technology for Interplanetary Voyage, which is a candidate mission of Epsilon Launch Vehicle, plans to execute scientific observations using instruments with the mass of up to about 10 kg on the transfer and Halo orbit of the sun to earth Lagrangian point L1/L2 or on the fly-by orbit of near earth objects (NEO). Potential scientific objects include in-situ observation and remote sensing from these space are solar system explorations, such as, the observations of plasma and energetic particles around the terrestrial magnetosphere, inter-planetary and inter-stellar dust, and NEO. It is also considered to be useful for the pilot observations for future infrared, gamma-ray, and cosmic-ray space astronomical telescope in the deep space. Applied missions of DESTINY will be able to go to deep space with higher mass of payloads. Using the Epsilon Launch Vehicle, it will convey instruments of up to 50 kg to the space between Venus and Mars. DESTINY launched by the improved launch vehicle with the power of M-V rocket will carry payloads of up to 200 kg into the orbit of Venus and Mars. In these phases, Explorations for Venus, Mars, and multiple NEO, and astronomical observations from the deep space observatory will be realized by low cost deep space missions.
