Delivery of Percussion module for Luna-27 mission

In January 2016 Astronika finalized the integration of a percussion module prototype for Lunar Drill the hammering system for the Russian-led Luna-Resurs (Luna-27) Moon mission.

For the target application on the Lunar Pole, the Lunar Drill will be equipped with both a torsional drive and a percussion module which will impart an axial force in order to enhance the conventional drilling process.

The completion of activities focused on the optimization of operational efficiency and reliability allowed Astronika to deliver the device to SELEX-ES, the consortium leader, for further testing with the drilling device.
