Peregrine Lander

Orbit and surface operations at any lunar destination



The Peregrine Lander precisely and safely delivers payloads to lunar orbit and the lunar surface on each mission. Payloads can be mounted above or below the decks, and can remain attached or deployed according to their needs.

Peregrine avionics achieve terrestrial computing speed with high reliability. Rugged, radiation-tolerant computing enables autonomous landing and safety in the demanding space environment.

Peregrine’s structure is stout, stiff, and simple, allowing for easy payload integration. The configurable decks accommodate payload-unique mounting and placement. Rover missions release from the underside of the deck. Four legs absorb shock and stabilize Peregrine on touchdown. Peregrine mates to the launch vehicle using a standard clampband.

Peregrine uses a propulsion system featuring next generation space engine technology. Peregrine has five engines, with 667 N thrust each, serving as the spacecraft’s main engines for all major maneuvers. The main engines are concentric with the spacecraft central axis and perform a trans-lunar injection, trajectory correction, lunar orbit insertion, and powered descent.

Guidance Navigation & Control

Peregrine’s GNC system uses heritage algorithms that are further enhanced by recent developments in navigation with machine vision. Peregrine also uses off-the-shelf sensors and algorithms for navigation during cruise and orbit. It determines position and attitude from radio time-of-flight, Doppler, sun sensor, star tracker, and Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU).

During powered descent and landing, a Doppler LiDAR provides velocity information that guides the spacecraft to a safe landing at the target site within the touchdown constraints.
