Agreement Value:
The objective of this project is to demonstrate software technology and provide ground software and mission operations support in navigation and science for a lunar rover mission. This project will realize key elements of Mission Control's product roadmap by demonstrating a set of critically enabling technologies and capabilities in mission operations, onboard autonomy, and artificial intelligence. The project will be the first of its kind to use new computing architectures to enable advanced algorithms to automate resource-constrained rovers. It will advance the state-of-the-art in lunar rover concepts of operations and investigate what optimal levels of autonomy are required to maximise mission objectives. It will serve as the first known in-space demonstration of a deep learning algorithm operating on the surface of the Moon. The project will also provide disruptive innovations in demonstrating how software-defined systems can be used to lower development and deployment costs of mission software, while enhancing mission capabilities
