Morpheus Lander Night Flight Test

This evening the Morpheus Lander performed it first night flight test to demonstrate the Autonomous Landing Hazard Avoidance Technology (ALHAT)’s ability to function even in the dark.

The initial test was aborted, however following a review of the data the team re-cycled and was able to perform a successful test concluding with a successful landing as designed. We are waiting for word from the team to determine that ALHAT was in control for the whole flight.

At present this is the last of the tests for Morpheus.
