Designed to simulate impacts at a lower velocity than the All-Axis Light Gas gun. The facility consists of a vertically mounted high pressure gas system, propelling a large projectile (25 mm diameter) along a barrel at velocities currently over 100 m s-1 into a target regolith. The barrel can also tilt, allowing impacts at a variety of angles.
