“Conceptual design of the family of lunar lander-hoppers, presented by Yuzhnoye SDO at the Dubai Airshow 2019, became the real attention grabber of the YSDO display at the 16th International aerospace exhibition.
It was developed to study the surface of the Moon and to deliver up to 150 kg of payload to the Earth’s natural satellite with capability of triple hop with the scientific equipment. In the long view, it opens new capabilities for the research and exploration activities on the Moon.
One-fifth scale model of the Lunar Lander-Hopper, manufactured by Yuzhnoye SDO using in-house additive technologies, was for the first time presented at the Dubai Airshow 2019,” Yuzhnoye State Design Office said in a statement on its website.
