Publisher Description

The goal of this COllaborative Modeling for the Parametric Assessment of Space Systems (COMPASS) session was to use Total Low Cost as the objective function, and design a Robotic Lunar Lander to deliver an unspecified payload (greater than zero) to the lunar surface for the lowest cost. The spacecraft designed as the baseline out of this study was a solar powered robotic lander, launched on a Minotaur V launch vehicle on a direct injection trajectory to the lunar surface. A Star 27 solid rocket motor does lunar capture and performs 88 percent of the descent burn. The Robotic Lunar Lander soft-lands using a hydrazine propulsion system to perform the last 10 percent of the landing maneuver, leaving the descent at a near zero, but not exactly zero, terminal velocity. This low-cost robotic lander delivers 10 kg of science payload instruments to the lunar surface.
