FDSN code XA (2025-2027) Network name FarSide Seismic Suite (FSS)
Start year 2025 Operated by
End year 2027 Deployment region -

a NASA Commercial Lunar Payload Services that will place a single seismic station on the Moon to study the far side seismicity and interior of the Moon. Landing is expected in May 2025.
The CLPS Lander will carry the FSS experiment, a stand alone package with a nominal operation of 4.5 months. Its payload is based on a vertical very Broad Band (VBBZ) and on a 3-axis Short Period (SP)seismometers. VBBZ is a spare model of InSight seismometer, while the SP is derived from InSight SP technology.
In addition, environmental sensors will provide temperature data.
