The Keck Institute for Space Studies (KISS) was established at the Caltech in January 2008 with a $24 million grant over 8 years from the W. M. Keck Foundation. The Institute is a "think and do tank," whose primary purpose is to bring together a broad spectrum of scientists and engineers for sustained technical interaction aimed at developing new space mission concepts and technology.
The best expertise from the Caltech Campus, JPL, and the wider scientific and technical community, is convened at the Institute to conduct in-depth technical studies in focused areas of science and technology. These studies must concentrate on ideas that have the capability for revolutionary advances in space mission capability. Once a key innovation/challenge for a new mission or instrument concept is identified, the Institute then funds the initial steps towards making progress on that key innovation/challenge.
