FDSN Network Information

FDSN code DL Network name DLR/ESA LUNA Facility Seismic Network
Start year 2023 Operated by
End year - Deployment region Germany

DLR and ESA are currently jointly building the LUNA analogue facility in Cologne, which will provide a simulation lunar environment to test hardware, commanding and procedures for future planetary, and especially lunar, missions as well as be used in astronaut training. Geophysical missions are an important use case, and permanent seismic station(s) will be installed in LUNA to provide continuous reference information. This will include a Trillium compact 120 s broad-band sensor, but may grow in the future. LUNA will consist of a 700 square-meter hall covered in at least 60 cm of regolith simulant - the seismometer(s) will be installed on the concrete floor beneath the regolith.
