OHB and IAI plan commercial lunar lander mission in late 2022. IAI along with the European partner OHB, plans to provide a commercial access service to the Moon to provide users with lunar exploration technology through an affordable service.
IAI expands its activities to include planetary missions. Within this area, IAI’s ILL (Israeli Lunar lander) has evolved on the solid base of Beresheet. IAI's moon-lander (about 1.6 m height, 2.3 m in diameter and a launch mass of 600 Kg) is suitable for multiple payload housing options (such as cubesats, sensors or rovers) in lunar orbit or on the lunar surface.
Firefly Aerospace and IAI Enter Exclusive Agreement for U.S. Commercialization of Lunar Lander Technology. Firefly Aerospace is one of the nine companies selected by NASA to participate in the Commercial Lunar Payload Services (CLPS) program to deliver science payloads to the surface of the Moon.
