One of the three companies selected by NASA The creation of the Human Landing System (HLS) for NASA has completed a critical step, namely a comprehensive test article for its lander and its NASA evaluation and review. Dynetics HLS is about the size of the Apollo Lunar Module, but the layout is quite different, as shown in the picture above.
dynamics In the video introduction on Tuesday, a brief overview of the test article and its purpose was given. As you can see in the walkthrough below, it is essentially a real-size 3D model that includes modular, rearrangeable components. These do not include actual working electronic devices or anything else. They are more like Lego bricks. NASA and Dynetics engineers working on the product can use them together to ensure that the HLS design is used in the final aerospace. The ergonomics and functions of the crew can work properly and it can make travel down to the lunar surface.
The test article’s components include the crew module in which astronauts will live and work during their stay on the moon, as well as storage tanks for propellant during the propulsion and descent phases, an automated cargo platform and tall solar arrays, It will power the spacecraft. Dynetics and its subcontractor LSINC created the simulation vehicle in just three months after being awarded the contract by NASA.
The goal of Dynetics, Blue Origin and SpaceX is to compete with each other for an initial contract that will bring humans to the surface of the moon as a plan for NASA̵
