Lunar Base Elements Designed for Robotic Operations

by Brent Sherwood, Boeing Aerospace & Electronics, United States,

Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Engineering, Construction, and Operations in Space II


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.
