- Over 50 flybys of Titan, 11 of Enceladus, and 12 of other moons
- Continued observations of Saturn and its rings as the season changes from equinox to solstice
- Twenty orbits with the periapses just outside the F ring for detailed measurements of the rings mass and structure
- Twenty-two orbits with the periapses inside the rings and just above the atmosphere for studies of Saturn's interior (to be followed by Cassini's plunge into the atmosphere at the end of the mission)
