Paper Abstract

Extraterrestrial geological exploration is the endeavor that most often requires breaking through the top layer of the regolith in order to transport sensors beneath its surface. One of the tools that enable this are planetary penetrators. The Laboratory of Mechatronics and Space Robotics has been developing this type of devices for many years. This paper present the concept of a new design of the electromagnetic driver for the MOLE type penetrator. 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”.
