Lunar Lander Landing Site Decision in Low-Fuel Case
KAIST, Department of Aerospace Engineering, Daejeon, Korea
This paper deals with lunar landing site decision algorithms for the case when the lunar lander is not able to reach the original landing site. A new landing site which minimizes the fuel consumption of the lunar rover is determined from landing site candidates located within the maximum reachable downrange of the lunar lander. A path planning algorithm is introduced to determine the new landing site which has the shortest path to the original landing site among the candidates. Numerical simulations are conducted to verify the performance of the proposed algorithm.
