A. Stern 12 June 2003 New Horizons: Overview New Horizons was one of the consortia proposals submitted for AO-OSS-01, NASA’s request for flyby mission proposals to Pluto- Charon and the Kuiper Belt. New Horizons was selected by NASA on 29 Nov 2001. The Senate and House funded New Horizons to enter full-scale development in their FY03 NASA bill. President Bush signed this funding bill on 20 Feb 2003. New Horizons is now in Phase C/D and designated New Frontiers 1.
A. Stern 12 June 2003 New Horizons Overview Spacecraft: A heritage-base, highly- redundant systems, and carrying a 300 m/s ΔV budget. Mass: ~415 kg. Encounters: A two-month Jupiter encounter, a five-month Pluto-Charon encounter, then on to explore one or more KBOs. Payload: 7 distinct instruments, plus EPO Student Dust Counter. Science Performance: Exceeds the AO specs for all Group 1 objectives; meets or exceeds the all Group 2, and 3 of the 4 Group 3 objectives.
