Human Landing System Lunar Thermal Analysis GuidebookThe purpose of the Human Landing System (HLS) Lunar Thermal Analysis Guidebook (L-TAG) is to provide guidance to experienced thermal engineering personnel on how to conduct worst-case hot and cold lunar thermal analyses for the design of HLS hardware in both lunar orbit and lunar surface environments. The HLS L-TAG will include pointers to the Cross-Program Design Specification for Natural Environments (DSNE), SLS-SPEC-159, and best practices/approaches for interpreting and complying with the DSNE lunar thermal environments in the analysis of HLS spacecraft, vehicles and systems. The HLS L-TAG is a reference document that is available to all HLS thermal analysts. In the event of a conflict with the descriptions provided herein, the DSNE takes precedence. This document represents the best available information at the time of publication and will undergo updates as the HLS program evolves. Feedback from the user community is encouraged to support further refinement of the Guidebook.
