The landing of rovers and human crews on planetary bodies is one of the main challenge of the next Solar System exploration era and requires the development of very compact instrumentation for in situ analysis. Based on three combined measuring techniques, the FLY-SPec instrument is conceived for a rapid identification of minerals, soils and rocks during Lunar surface campaigns. It consists of a context camera, a laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS) unit and a near-to-short wavelength infrared reflectometer channel. We present the FLY-SPec concept and the first experimental results that we have obtained in laboratory.
