Extreme Environments

The Extreme Environments focus area will progress technologies enabling the survival and operation of systems through the full range of lunar surface and subsurface conditions that drive engineering requirements. These technologies will enablelanders, rovers, manipulators, and other systems to operate through extreme conditions such as rapid temperature changes and permanently shadowed regions. Addition examples of extreme environments include exogenic factors (e.g. illumination, communications, radiation, plasma, micro-meteorites) and endogenic factors (e.g., dust, surface toxicity, regolith, rocks). An important expected output is the generation of an Extreme Environments User's Guide.
