In July 2010, NASA's Office of Chief Technologist initiated a study to identify where substantial enhancements in mission capabilities are needed to enable and enhance future missions, and to provide strategic guidance for the agency's budget formulation and prioritization process. This paper summarizes the Science Instruments, Observatories and Sensor Systems technology assessment with an emphasis on the needs of NASA's Astrophysics Division.
