DigitalSpace is participating as a team member on the RLEP2 (Robotic Lunar Exploration Program) surface mobility trades team during the "pre-phase A" work on this planned 2011 robotic mission to the Lunar south pole. This mission will look for water ice and other useful materials in the permanently shadowed areas of polar Lunar craters. The presence of water ice could aid humanity in creating a more sustainable presence on the moon in the future. DigitalSpace is producing a series of design prototype simulations including vehicles and lunar terrain for use in the surface mobility (rover) trade studies.
