Dynetics today (September 15 local time) provided an update to the human landing system (HLS) for NASA’s lunar lander contract. The company is one of three companies that received funding from NASA in April to build a lander that will be a key part of NASA’s Artemis program, which aims to permanently exist on the moon’s surface. < / P > < p > the launch was conducted in the form of video, providing more details of the company’s manned landing system model. In the past few months, the development of HLS has accelerated. The model consists of the ascending and descending parts of the HLS. The third part is a transition phase, which was not delivered to NASA in August. < / P > < p > the purpose of this model is to enable the crew to test and allow dynamics to adjust their performance to meet human needs. Kim Doering, the company’s vice president of space operations, said the model was a low fidelity test piece that allowed dynetics to update the module’s design while NASA continued testing. The team of the alliance is currently testing the design of HLS in terms of component size, etc. < / P > < p > through this test, the dynetics team will determine the correct position and size of different parts of the spacecraft. These components include HLS window, hatch, display button and controller. More importantly, HLS will be fully reusable. < p > < p > dynetics engineer Sean mcduffie, after delving into more details of the test item, pointed out that the model was made in full size, the same size as the final HLS variant. The interior space of the crew module will be similar to the final vehicle, and dynetics has been built within three months of NASA’s contract award. Mcduffie said his team is currently evaluating the habitable volume of the model spacecraft, the habitability of anthropometric measurements, the orientation of components and the activities inside and outside the spacecraft. < / P > < p > HLS is part of a $976 million contract between NASA and dynetics, SpaceX, and the national team led by blue origin, Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman and draper labs. < / P > < p > unfortunately, there are still few details about the propulsion system of the manned landing system, and dynetics’ competitors blue origin and SpaceX will use their own built-in rocket engines to achieve this goal.
