Polar Relay Lite

Provides relay and limited orbital science for distant worlds.

A more powerful relay satellite than the Polar Relay Scanner. This relay drops the polar ore scanner and one-shot science experiments for a more compact size and lower part count. When packaged together in pairs, the base carrier is equipped with a single polar scanner and used in that role after relay deployment.

The Lite was developed for use within the Jool Comms MIRV and its package to each moon as the Jool MIRV Round. The close following of the crewed mission behind the launch of the MIRV meant that Materials Bay and Goo experiments could be run, reported and refurbished by scientists on site with the hardware they rode on. This freed up the MIRV design team to make the individual rounds and relays as small as possible. Repeatable orbital science experiments are retained for future contract fulfillment.

Built with 16 of the finest parts, its root part is HECS2.ProbeCore.

Built in the VAB in KSP version 1.2.2.
