Lunar Odyssey

LunaVeR

342 Created with Sketch. 6

Lunar rovers for exploration and prospecting that can be experienced in VR.

Summary

Advanced multi-functional units (rovers and robots) designed, built, launched, and deployed to one of the polar regions of the Moon selected for likely exploration and prospecting in view of future permanent outposts and settlement. The units will carry a range of equipment for scientific analysis, cooperative telerobotics, and resource assay, (e.g. searching for water, materials suited to ISRU, and possible exports like Helium 3).

The on-board electronics will include data, image and video communications along with Artificial Intelligence (AI) subsystems to permit partial automation. Additionally, the units will support direct teleoperation from Earth. The public will be encouraged to take part in ongoing explorations and operations with an innovative Virtual Reality (VR) system that will permit users on Earth to experience the Moon in near-realtime based on returned data, images and video.
