Lexicon Project

Lexicon design aims to improve the filtering solutions already adopted in the Apollo mission by reducing the required maintenance and increasing the number of possible applications. The system is based on a closed-cycle, involving an inert fluid coupled with a cyclone filter to collect the dust produced inside a dome accommodating the ISRUmachine. The system’s scalability is allowed by 3D printing almost all the components and assembling them in-situ, thus avoiding the transportation of bulky materials.

Experimental Payload V0

The experimental payload EPv0 is a project of the italian company Sidereus Space Dynamics developed, designed and built with the contribution of PoliSpace. EPv0 aims to characterize through measurements the payload bay of Sidereus’ launcher EOS.
