The ROSETTA Lander is part of ESAs cornerstone mission ROSETTA aimed at the exploration of the comet Wirtanen and will be flown pick-a-back on the ROSETTA Orbiter. The structure for the lander is designed and built at the DLR Institute of Structural Mechanics in Braunschweig. The challenge in the structural design of the lander is to find a minimum weight structure that can accommodate all payload, meet the stringent thermal requirements of the mission, and resist the mechanical loads during launch. The obvious choice is a structure fabricated almost entirely from sandwich plates with carbon fiber reinforced face sheets. In this paper the design requirements for the lander, and an overview of the lander structure, as it is currently being manufactured for the qualification test cycle to be conducted in 1999, is given. Further, the structural analysis, preliminary test results, and the development history are described.
