Backbone Relay Link

The Relay Power Flower is for augmenting Kerbin’s land based DSN. With 16 RA-100 relay dishes it’s the most powerful individual relay in the network. Built to be stacked on top of another and launched as a pair to polar orbit, they move to opposing elliptical orbits nearing escape velocity over the North and South Poles. When each reaches its AP as the other reaches its PE, the Mun and Minmus will not block LOS back to Kerbin at any time. The relay also features a docking port in case refuel is needed. Unlike the smaller relays in the network, it’s equipped with RCS for accurate positioning and powered by the LV-N nuclear thruster for efficient travel.

The Power Flower was also used as local relays for distant Eeloo and a more maneuverable version, the Power Flower Extra is deployed to Jool to serve as the backbone link for the local relays around its moons as part of the Jool Comms MIRV.

Built with 57 of the finest parts, its root part is probeStackSmall.

Built in the VAB in KSP version 1.2.2.
