Amalia mission scenario
- Launch phase: the AMALIA Lunar Lander is put by the launcher in a low altitude parking orbit (200–300km, circular or slightly elliptic).
- Lunar transfer orbit(LTO)insertion phase: the Lander begins the apogee raising and performs LTO insertion maneuvers (typically three-burns).
- Lunar orbit insertion (LOI) phase: in proximity of the Moon, the Lander performs a lunar orbit injection(LOI) maneuver to reach the target LLO.
- Loiter and landing phase: when inserted in LLO, the Lander, after several orbits around the Moon, begins the descent and landing maneuvers.
- Surface operations phase: After landing, the AMALIA Rover is deployed from the Lander and performs its operations on lunar surface in order to meet the mission goals according to GLXP requirements.
