• The development of synergistic tools and research methods for exploration with an emphasis on fine-grained surfaces
The TREX team is:
Using lab and spacecraft measurements scientific studies of the Moon and small bodies…
… To determine in situ resource utilization (ISRU) potential on these bodies,
… To develop software that will inform astronauts or autonomous robotic spacecraft of location and quality of in situ resources.
• The TREX toolbox will emphasize areas previously inadequately studied, including UV wavelengths and fine particles.
