Lunar Outpost has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Made In Space Europe (MIS EU), a subsidiary of Redwire. The MOU covers mission development leveraging the combined robotics systems of Lunar Outpost and MIS EU that could enable new and exciting applications for robotics systems on the lunar surface and beyond. The MOU details intent to develop a cooperative mission planned for 2023, with follow on missions planned for 2024 and 2025. 

Lunar Outpost is supporting Nokia’s LTE/4G NASA Tipping Point project with Intuitive Machines, a leader in cutting-edge technologies for space, to build, integrate and test the first-ever LTE/4G network on the surface of the Moon. One of the primary objectives of the Nokia technology demonstration is to validate that Nokia’s LTE/4G technology can support proximity communications for lunar operations and future human spaceflight, as well as to begin building important infrastructure that will enable rapid growth in the cislunar economy.
