Canada is Designing a Rover for Moon Exploration

The CSA is preparing for a Canadian rover to explore a polar region of the Moon within the next five years. As part of this Lunar Exploration Accelerator Program (LEAP), the Canadian Lunar Rover will gather imagery, measurements, and data on the surface of the Moon. The rover will also survive an entire lunar night, posing significant technological challenges and making history for lunar exploration in Canada. Two Canadian companies have been selected to design lunar rover concepts. BTI is pleased to be working with one of the companies, Canadensys Aerospace Corporation, to provide one of the Canadian science instruments in the payload suite.
