Smallsats for Small Body Exploration and Technology Infusion

We summarize current and emerging smallsat capabilities and their synergy with the science goals sought at small bodies (including planetary defense and human exploration). We recommend investments to further extend the reach of smallsats in order to increase their science return and make the case for using smallsats as technology infusion vectors.
