This flyby will provide important information about Titan's upper atmosphere while the moon is in a sparsely sampled region of Saturn's magnetosphere.

This is an important flyby for Cassini's Ion and Neutral Mass Spectrometer (INMS), as it is one of only two passes (the pass known as "T-5," [April 2005] being the other one) over the dawn side of Titan during which INMS will sample the moon's neutral atmosphere and ionosphere.
