Abstract: Equipment concepts developed for a study of robotic lunar surface operations are presented. The concepts were evolved together with a consistent robotic buildup and operations scenario; they reflect contemporary understanding of lunar base technologies, and specifically accommodate robotic constraints. The entire inventory of elements required for an initial base is discussed.
