Presentation #108.09 in the session Poster Presentations.
During the last few years, there has been a renewed interest in Moon exploration. Lunar missions in the past have, in general, relied on existing Earth-based communication and navigation services . The growing demand for these services, as well as its limited accuracy and coverage, calls for a dedicated lunar communications and navigation service . Here, we present the Lunar Service Volume Simulator (LSIM), a cloud-based mission analysis and design software tool for lunar missions, and detail current capabilities of the simulator. LSIM has been partially funded through the ESA Lunar Communications and Navigation Service (LCNS) Phase A/B1 Study.
