Abstract
The Next Generation Space Telescope will extend astronomers vision of the early universe beyond the reach of the Hubble Space Telescope to much greater redshifts and luminosity distances. TRW is being funded by NASA to develop mission architectures that can achieve the NGST science goals, while still remaining within a rigid cost cap. This paper presents candidate NGST mission architectures and identifies the key enabling technologies which must be developed to realize them.
