Paper Abstract

Space penetrator is a device used to get beneath the surface of the celestial body in order to carry out scientific investigation. It is often forced to operate in regolith of unknown properties and this makes the ability to adapt to unforeseen conditions of the space environment its highly demanded feature. This paper describes the design concept of planetary penetrator control electronics system that allows precise control of hammering mechanism impact energy and thus is able to adjust to variety of operation modes. It is developed in CBK under the grant of The National Centre for Research and Development (NCBiR) (Contract no. PBS3/A6/23/2015) “Planetary penetrator for geological investigations on a space mission”.
