Description

CalSpace’s proposal for a new module to add to Kerman Station.

We call it the HPUM (Habitat and Power/Utility Module) Power Tower. It has a small but comfortable cabin with (the IVA doesn’t actually have all this, just pretend ) individual sleeping quarters, lounge areas, a proper restroom, and storage lockers. The Power Tower also has four radially mounted radiators, which we at CalSpace believe will assist with Kerman Station’s heat dissipation, something that appears to not be touched upon with the current layout.

The addition of the Power Tower will require some minor changes to Kerman Station. First of all, the solar panels on the Harmony and Sumerki modules must be retracted to make way for the larger, more advanced solar cells of the Power Tower. Also, the Fate laboratory module must be rotated 90 degrees to catch the Sun better with its solar arrays. Optionally, but we recommend, the station must be positioned Prograde (when controlling from the avionics module) at all times for optimal performance of the solar panels from the Power Tower.

A mod rocket called Kerman Station Power Tower. Built with 25 of the finest parts, its root part is sspx-habitation-25-1.

Built in the VAB in KSP version 1.12.5.
