Whole New Landing Systems of Lunar/Planetary Exploration Spacecraft

Lunar/Planetary exploration spacecraft landing missions require a soft landing mechanism to prevent a large shock load and tipping over when landing on various types of terrain. The presenter's research group previously invented a novel landing mechanism called a Telescopic-Gear-Base-Extension Separation Mechanism that operates by means of energy transfer and an adjustable structure. This mechanism passively adjusts the shape of the landing gear according to the landing terrain and transfers the energy of the lander to a spring as potential energy. The outstanding performance of this landing mechanism was demonstrated experimentally. In this lecture, we discuss whole new landing systems such as an above example and try to create new idea through group working.
