Research overview:
A radio lunar underground probe and radar sounder observation apparatus are mounted on the SELENE orbital lunar exploration satellite. Fundamental research toward the development of that equipment is conducted from the following three approaches: (1) Verification of the process of radio wave refection from and penetration into the lunar surface by computer simulation. (2) Production of anhydrous rock analogous to lunar rock, and measurement of its tan-δ characteristic. (3) Design and construction of a high-power (800 watts) sort-wave radar.
