About DART

NASA's DART mission was originally part of the complementary dual mission concept with the European Space Agency (ESA) called AIDA, Asteroid Impact and Detection Assessment. DART is able to perform the planetary defense test in coordination with, or independent of, the ESA mission by using observations from ground-based telescopes and radar observations.

The DART Mission is being developed under the auspices of NASA's Planetary Defense Coordination Office. NASA established this office to coordinate planetary defense related activities across NASA, and coordinate both US interagency and international efforts and projects to address and plan response to the asteroid impact hazard.
