Moon Express Mini-Radar Takes Flight - Webisode 1
Between April and July, 2011, Moon Express tested and demonstrated its new Mini-Radar System under NASA's Innovative Lunar Demonstration Data (ILDD) Program, successfully reaching an important milestone in its commercial lunar data contract. Radar provides autonomous landing spacecraft with crucial ranging information to the surface and has been one of the most challenging and high risk elements of all lander systems. Moon Express captured the Mini-Radar development In a series of webisodes called 'Moon Express Mini-Radar Takes Flight'. In Webisode 1, Moon Express Project Engineer Mike Vergalla narrates the technical preparation and experience of the initial test flight aboard the Zeppelin 'Eureka'.
