Lunar Research Service (LRS) and Rocket Factory Augsburg AG (RFA) signed a launch services agreement for the LRS 3U satellite to be launched in December 2022.
Among the features of the mission are proprietary satellite design and a developed in-house deployment system.
LRS will use the results of the mission to improve its ground-orbit communications and test a solar concentrator that will be used in the upcoming lunar mission launched with space in 2023-2024.
For the first time, consumer brands can now conduct business in the stratosphere.
That means you can develop products in a near-space environment, then you sell it for profit, you can create a marketing campaign from the altitude of 30 km a higher, or if you are really feeling adventurous, you can launch your product in orbit. We powering NewSpace companies.
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 for 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.
