TREX Goal:

• 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.
