Landing Site Edit
Although still undetermined, the landing site will probably be around -20 to -30 dead on the equator. This is inside a valley, allowing the craft to slow down as much as they possibly can, especially if they rely on Parachutes. More data is available here.
Site components Edit
As of now, this list is incomplete.

DMSP's Components Edit
The Hazard+Dropbox Edit
Two Duna rovers with different landing systems. They are almost identical, except "Dropbox" is more refined. The reason behind DMSP launching 2 is that there is plenty of redundancy in the double system. If one fails to land softly for whatever reason, the other can have an attempt to do so as well.
Drop the Base Edit
The first outpost on Duna. It has a capacity for 4 crew members. It will serve as the primary operation center for the Duna Program. It uses a similar descent method to "Dropbox", as they are both inside dropship Cargo bays.
TheGuyNamedAlan's Components Edit
Heart of Kerbals Edit
Date of launch: November 20th
Launch vehicle: Alan's Xtra Super Heavy Lifter (I really dont have any other name so yeah :D)
The Heart of Kerbals is a 40+ kerbal transport system. The first launch carried 2 crew and 9 passengers to duna. This vehicle has parachutes for emergency as it uses supersonic retro-propulsion along with parachutes to slow it down for landing. It consists of 9 large landing legs which makes it easier to land.
DEAV(Duna emergency ascent vehicle) Edit
Planned Launch date: November 29th
A simple accent vehicle that can hold 1 kerbal. It's way overpowered (can get into kerbin orbit [as of ksp 1.2]) so there will be no problems even if something exploded during re-entry. This is planned to land at the landing site.
Baybrawler's components. EditOn 13 Nov 2016 the "Duna Rover" was deployed on Duna. It is equipped with a Surface Scanning Module and a Narrow Band Scanner. Any person is permitted to drive it wherever they please as long as it is not destroyed or demobilized.
DMSP has successfully spent hours moving the rover to the Ground Operations Center. It is currently the first part at the base.
Rover Transfer to the landing site. Edit
DMSP spent a total of 5 or so hours to transfer the little rover, taking a video along the way. A music video will soon be released on the transfer across half the planet.
