It’s a long list, and I don’t see any specific flight assignments yet, but there are a few payloads of note in here:
- MoonRanger, a small rover from Astrobotic with Andrew Horchler as the principal investigator. Andrew appeared on the podcast a year ago with Michael Provenzano to talk about CubeRover, which has gone mysteriously silent and sounds a lot like MoonRanger.
- PlanetVac, a sample acquisition system from Honeybee Robotics.
- LISTER, a horrible acronym yet really interesting sounding drill that will attempt to make its way 2 to 3 meters into the surface of the Moon.
- SAMPLR, which will use a flight spare of the Mars Exploration Rovers’ arms to investigate lunar regolith.
