NASA Lunabotics Competition
The NASA Lunabotics Competition is a design challenge for college teams based off of the current NASA mission of traveling to, and potentially inhabiting Mars. To get to Mars, we will first need to travel to the moon. Thus, The Lunabotics competition challenges college level teams to design and build an autonomous robot that can maneuver rocky lunar regolith and create a regolith-based berm. The goal is to build a berm structure which would be useful to the Artemis Mission for protection during lunar landings and launches, shading cryogenic propellant tank farms, providing radiation protection around a nuclear power plant and other mission uses. The robot will be scored based on a project management plan, systems engineering paper, and a proof of life video.
