The Vikram lander has eight sensors:

1. Laser Inertial Referencing and Accelerometer Package (LIRAP)

2. Ka-Band Altimeter (KaRA)

3. Lander Position Detection Camera (LPDC)

4. LHDAC (Lander Hazard Detection & Avoidance Camera)

5. Laser Altimeter (LASA)

6. Laser Doppler Velocimeter (LDV)

7. Lander Horizontal Velocity Camera (LHVC)

8. Micro Star sensor

9. Inclinometer & Touchdown sensors

Luna-25 also shares Moon images

Russia’s Luna-25 programmed station flying in a round circle of the counterfeit satellite of the Moon has snapped a photo of the lunar surface with TV cameras of the STS-L complex.
