The IRTF is a national facility. Observing time is open to all and is mostly dedicated to solar system mission support and planetary (including non-solar system) science. We summarize current capabilities (instrumentation, flexible scheduling, remote and daytime observing) and discuss new capabilities for planetary defense and primitive bodies.
