Analog Environments

The TREX team will take our knowledge of spectral characteristics of candidate materials (based on our laboratory studies) out into the field, to test algorithms for sample identification and selection, and to understand how our tools can help to make future exploration more efficient.

We will venture to analog environments similar to those on the Moon and on small bodies (asteroids) and perform simulations as in robotic and future human spaceflight missions.

Stay tuned and check back here for updates from the field! April-May 2019.
