Dust Mitigation

The Dust Mitigation focus area will work to develop dust mitigation technologies that protect lunar systems in use on the lunar surface from the threat of contamination and damage from local dust.Capability areas in need of dust mitigation include optical systems, thermal surfaces, fabrics, mechanisms, seals and soft goods, and gaseous filtration. High priority areas for investigation are surface stabilization, dust tolerant textiles, filtration, electromechanics and magnetics, aswell as dust mitigation structures. The team will work to adapt terrestrial technology for the space environment, and to mature environmental testing technologies.
