Lockheed Martin and GM to develop next-gen lunar rover for NASA
To support NASA’s Artemis program two industry leaders will develop a unique vehicle with innovative capabilities
with innovative capabilities. NASA’s Artemis program is sending humans to the Moon where they will conduct scientific experiments using a variety of rovers. NASA was looking for industries to develop a Lunar Terrain Vehicle (LTV) that will enable astronauts to explore To support NASA’s Artemis program two industry leaders will develop a unique vehicle the lunar surface. The LTV would be the first of its kind surface mobility vehicles needed for NASA’s Artemis program.
With their unparalleled engineering, technologies, performance and reliability legacies Lockheed Martin and GM will develop the LTV. Their result may allow astronauts to explore the lunar surface and support discoveries in places where humans have never gone before. Lockheed Martin will lead the team due to its 50-years of working with NASA. This collaboration will bring together powerhouse innovation from both companies to make a transformative class of vehicles. Moreover, GM will use its autonomous technology to facilitate safer and more efficient operations on Moon. Autonomous self-driving systems will enable the rovers to prepare for human landings, give payment load services and enhance the range and utility of scientific payloads and experiments
