Crosscutting Capabilities

The Crosscutting Capabilities (CC) Focus Area (FA) will focus on the topics, technologies, and capabilities needed to enable a functional lunar infrastructure to support a sustained lunar presence. This multi-faceted FA of LSIC will cover areas impacting technology implementation and use, including systems-level discussions such as interoperability, testing and environments, regolith/dust/simulants, robotics and autonomy, and more. The CC FA will continue the topics of Extreme Environments, Dust Mitigation, Lunar Simulants, Extreme Access, and Interoperability.

These cross-cutting topics are critical for all LSII technology areas and often involve many stakeholders in the lunar/cislunar infrastructure – across NASA and all partners returning to the Moon. This team will be closely engaged with the infrastructure technology areas of LSIC and will engage a broad set of stakeholders to accelerate the development of lunar technologies.

Goals:

As lunar technologies and LSIC mature, there is an increased need for cross-collaboration and a synergistic and systems-level approach to our conversations. CC will support the community by maintaining resource hubs, fostering collaboration between CC stakeholders, and raising awareness of CC topics and state-of-the-art technologies for the benefit of all lunar technology development. The CC FA will center efforts on starting and maintaining these conversations as we support the broader LSIC FAs, collaborate amongst stakeholders and the community, and learn from each other!

Activities
