Synergies between Commercial Lunar Payload Services (CLPS) & Cold Tech and Row World Landers

 

Land a CLPS lander in permanent darkness Lunar crater to test ROW world cold tech and to collect data

Seek commonality with Row World landers

Cost engineer this! use CLPS to test Cold Tech and seek the Decadel survey science goals for the Atkinson basin lander

The idea of commonality among ROW world landers argues for a series of ARGOS type flybys of those objects in need of landing site characterizing. Ice Giants would require this but Juice should satisfy landing site characterization   for Callisto and Ganymede

So two Argos Uranus & Neptune flybys to cover unseen hemispheres of ROW worlds, Enceladus LIFE or Plume sample return uses the same spacecraft bus as ARGOS

8 to 10 common ROW world landers designed for the larger ROW worlds but with an engine that can throttle down for the smaller ROW worlds

CLSP and integration of Cold tech and a COTS ROW World program.Lunar night and dark crater test program.

 

Size the lander for Ganymede at

1.428 m/s2 (0.146 g)[e]

 

Or The Moon

0.779 m/s2 (0.0794 g)

Triton

1.235 m/s2 (0.126 g)[e]

Callisto

1.62 m/s2  (0.1654 g)[4]

Europa

1.314 m/s2 (0.134 g)[e]

Titania

0.379 m/s²[e]

Oberon

0.346 m/s²[c]

 

Ceres

Equatorial surface gravity
0.28 m/s2[7]
0.029 g

Mercury dark crater lander! this might have little commonality with any of the others

  • 3.7 m/s2
  • 0.38 g[6]

A way to fund or arrange for studies of these ideas
