Path to Sustainable Technologies in the Lunar Surface Environment
Tuesday, November 7, 2023
The objective for this virtual workshop is to focus on the qualification path to fielding long-lived technologies on the lunar surface. Stakeholders across industry, academia, and NASA will come together in a collaborative format to discuss the current state of the art, as well as essential knowledge and technology gaps related to the combined lunar and dust environment.
The Path to Sustainable Technologies in the Lunar Surface Environment Workshop will be grouped into three sessions:
- Existing Standards and Facilities – a series of lightning talks about current guidelines for testing against the lunar surface’s extreme conditions, followed by a Q&A session;
- Stakeholder Needs Panels – the first panel will discuss stakeholder alignment and NASA’s identified gaps. The second panel will focus on the needs of stakeholders in industry and academia. Both panels will include a Q&A session; and
- Town Hall on Next Steps – breakout rooms on actionable next steps to close gaps and qualify technology to fly to the lunar surface. This session will include subject matter experts and guided questions to facilitate productive discussions.
The workshop will conclude with an overview of the day’s findings and feedback session.
