FUTURE LUNAR LANDING NAVIGATION SCHEMES, WITH EMPHASIS ON PRECISION LANDINGS

Peer Reviewed

Abstract: Preliminary descriptions and analyses of a precision lunar landing using various navigation scenarios are presented. The sceneries assume the Common Lunar Lander (CLL) as a reference mission. Current state-of-the-art or off-the-shelf technology is emphasized to keep mission cost to a minimum-an important driver in the possible funding of future space missions. It is concluded that precision navigation sensor suites are required to meet certain stringent mission navigation requirements.
