Lunar orbiter tasked with conducting spectroscopic research of the Moon’s surface.

Description

Lunar orbiter tasked with conducting spectroscopic research of the Moon’s surface, especially its far side. An additional infrared experiment on the satellite will study the connection between IR emissions and tectonic activity. Travel towards the Moon by achieving GTO and using low energy transfer through Lagrangian point 1, using ion thrusters. It will be programmed to have a very high degree of autonomy. Its intended life is no less than one year.

Keywords Propulsion, Beyond Earth orbit, GTO or GEO orbit
