Lander

Is there an equivalent document to the Small Lunar Payload Users Guide (SLPUG) for the Lander? If not, what power output capabilities does the Lander have?

Does the Lander have IR communications? Does the Lander have a LASER of any frequencies? Is RADAR on board the Lander? If so, is it any other band other than Ka?

Will the Lander communicate to Earth directly or through LRO or will it have it's own Orbiter?

If I am correct, the Lander lands the Spacecraft (Rover). The Rover roams with it's Payloads. The Payloads talk to the Rover, which talks with the Lander, which talks with Earth, probably directly.

What other functions does the Lander perform, if any? Will the Lander potentially come back to life the next Lunar day? Does the Lander carry payloads other than the Rover? Are there CLPS vendor websites or such for more details?

I see there is a lot of good information about Landers and more at https://www.nasa.gov/content/commercial-lunar-payload-services
