Abstract

•General description of the Low Velocity Penetrator (LVP) working in reduced gravity, planetary environment.•Deriving the general equations applicable to each type of Low Velocity Penetrator (LVP) driven by hammering action.•Comparison of the experimental and numerical results of the mole penetrator movement in the regolith.•Analysis of the mole KRET motion stability as a function of mass and energy parameters.
