It will be equipped with high-definition, color photo and video, and terrain mapping capabilities, among other data acquisition technologies. Its design is universal in nature, consisting of a “rover bus” comprising standard structural, thermal management and mobility systems with basic functionality for imaging, near-real-time video and near-real-time teleoperation. Depending on customer needs, this can be made up of several payloads from different customers, or from a tailored suite of payloads for a dedicated, customer-specific mission.
This second mission will perform a soft landing and deploy a rover for surface exploration and data collection on the Moon. 2 ispace rovers can be delivered to the surface on each lander.
