A technology reference study for a multiple near-Earth object (NEO) Rendezvous mission with solar sailcraft is currently carried out by the authors of this paper. The investigated mission builds on previous concepts, but adopts a strong micro-spacecraft philosophy based on the DLR/ESA Gossamer technology. The main scientific objective of the mission is to explore the diversity of NEOs. After direct interplanetary insertion, the solar sailcraft should – within less than 10 years – rendezvous three NEOs that are not only scientifically interesting, but also from the point of human spaceflight and planetary defense. In this paper, the objectives of the study are outlined and a preliminary potential mission profile is presented.
