Abstract: Aiming at the demand for precise soft landing in complex areas in the future, the soft landing guidance technology for Moon/Mars exploration missions is reviewed. This paper firstly reviews the current Moon/Mars exploration missions and analyzes their development trends. Secondly, it summarizes the development of soft landing technology and gives the analysis on the development trend and difficulties. Finally, the full text is summarized and prospected. The research in this paper may provide some reference for the development of soft landing guidance technology.

Key words: Moon exploration, Mars exploration, Soft landing
