The Institute of Space Systems (IRS) at the University of Stuttgart is currently planning a lunar small satellite mission. The satellite will be equipped with a 6 mN and a 100 mN electric propulsion system. At the end of its primary science mission, it will perform a controlled impact-experiment on the lunar surface, including the soft landing of a small surface unit.
