Abstract [en]

For more than two centuries terrestrial observers have recorded a number of events which have been grouped under the title of Transient Lunar Phenomena (TLP). TLPs are basically apparent short term and regional changes on the moon surface, although different types exist. The possible causes of these phenomena have always been subject to considerable debate. On the other hand, with respect to planned expeditions and permanently manned bases to the Moon, and as a prerequisite to extended human presence into our solar system, it is important to gather the information on TLP, do the evaluation and give the explanations on the courses of these yet unexplained space phenomena. In this project, a dedicated and low cost TLP observation satellite which consist a constellation with two satellites to attain the sustained time coverage was proposed. The paper describes the motivation, objectives, key requirements and the mission concept for the autonomous detection and observation of the Transient Lunar Phenomenon (TLP). The focus of the design was put on the payload and the most important subsystem interacting with it. Furthermore, the paper shows it is feasible to observe the TLP by using a Nano-satellite.
