LightBeam: Flyby-Like Imaging Without The Flyby

The LightBeam spacecraft is a mission concept for a facility providing milliarcsecond-class imaging of solar system objects, from NEOs to the main belt to Jupiter Trojans. LightBeam achieves this via innovative in-space manufacturing techniques which enable a long-baseline optical interferometer to be flown in a cost-effective smallsat package.
