Below is a technology demonstration for long-term missions of small lunar rovers using the DMI Curtain System.
LRS proposes a lunar night survival method for small rovers using the DMI (Dome Multilayer Insulation) curtain system for long-term missions.
Until recently, it was difficult to install Radioisotope Heating Units or other temperature maintenance devices on small lunar rovers to enable lunar night survival, and so such rovers could only perform short two-week missions. Thermal analysis results show that small rovers could survive during lunar nights by moving into a shelter located inside the DMI curtain of the lander without mounting temperature maintenance devices. In order to enhance the feasibility of the DMI curtain system, we also propose ideas of a double-layer DMI.
Lunar Research Service (LRS) offers hardware testing for extreme environments. LRS evaluates all aspects of structural dynamics, including vibration, vibroacoustics, modal characteristics, sound transmission loss, and shock testing.
Below is a sneak peek of what we offer.
