Protective Personal Orbital Dingy (PPOD) Module

This module gives the KSS rescue and recovery Escape Pods Dingys for stranded Kerbals and the KSS crew. The frame holds 16 individual pods and docks to the portside Jr. port. The outside end of the PPOD replicates the KSS Jr. docking ring it obscures on installation. It is installed by the Scooty Puff Jr. and the frame can be deorbited once empty.
Escape Pod engines are deactivated by default, manual activation after separation is necessary. Probe core can be activated by 0 and is also off by default to save on power.

When the KSS, PPOD and RAM series are installed, users may have to be aware of asteroid shape and size for underside pod deployments. While the standard installation of PPOD with pods at 45 degree to station forward will clear most large asteroids attached by RAM or RAM 2, not every asteroid is shaped the same. Even with obstruction, space is provided for piloting maneuvers immediately after deployment to prevent collision.

Built with 205 of the finest parts, its root part is fairingSize2.

Built in the VAB in KSP version 1.2.2.
