This report is dedicated to studying a disrupting potential of Distributed Satellite System. DSS is a space-based system and a mission architecture, that consists of several satellites that are not physically attached to each other and constantly exchange information. These systems, when first formulated, seemed to be able to revolutionize space sector, however the mass interest to them disappeared quickly. Currently there is a strong overall negative opinion about DSS, as it was shown multiple times that they can cot compete with traditional monolithic spacecrafts in terms of mass, complexity and financial investments. Author of the report here tries to understand reasoning behind this opinion, and answer a question, whether there is a way to take value out of them in relation to studying celestial bodies of the Solar system.
Author looks into history of DSS, their types as well as into the process of a space project lifecycle. By manipulating the knowledge from open sources, author formulates several mission concepts, that fit DSS perfectly. These concepts were only made possible due to the usage of different advantages of DSS and leveraging their unique capabilities.
