LRO Instrument Integrations

The LRO payload, comprised of six instruments and one technology demonstration, will provide key data sets to enable a human return to the moon. Though built at a variety of partner institutions, all of LRO's instruments were integrated onto the spacecraft at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center.

LOLA The Lunar Orbiter Laser Altimeter (LOLA) on the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) will measure landing site slopes and lunar surface roughness, plus it will generate a high-resolution 3-D map of the moon. LOLA will also measure and analyze the lunar topography to identify permanently illuminated and shadowed regions. This footage includes b-roll of engineers installing the 9-meter fiber optic cable used for LOLA and the Laser Ranging telescope. The instrument was integrated during the summer of 2008 at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center.    LOLA

LROC The Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter Camera (LROC) on the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) consists of two narrow angle cameras and a wide-angle camera, which will provide close-up images of the lunar surface. These images will show polar lighting conditions, identify potential resources and hazards, and aid in the selection of safe landing sites. The instrument was integrated during the summer of 2008 at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland.    LROC

CRaTER The primary goal of the Cosmic Ray Telescope for the Effects of Radiation (CRaTER) on the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter is to characterize the global lunar radiation environment and its biological impacts. CRaTER will also test models of radiation effects and shielding, and measure radiation absorption by human tissue-like plastics. The instrument was integrated during the summer of 2008 at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center.    CRaTER
