Focusing on manufacturing and energy generation in the space environment utilizing space resources to create breakthrough technologies to facilitate the large-scale commercialization of the Moon.
Partners with DSTAR Communications which has established a team to create an external material processing platform on the International Space Station with autonomous, high throughput manufacturing capability. Markets for products manufactured by this facility include infrared optical fibers in medical and defense applications and ultralight solar arrays for commercial and military space platforms. The unique microgravity environment of space eliminates convection and sedimentation that occur on Earth, enabling the manufacture of premium quality materials and products with fewer defects and improved performance. In addition, the vacuum of space enables vacuum deposition in the same facility for improved reliability and improved functionality of the resulting products. The DSTAR Communications team includes partners [FOMS] of San Diego, California, [Visioneering Space] of Boise, Idaho, and [Lunar Resources] of Houston. : https://fomsinc.com/ : https://www.visioneeringspace.com/ : http://lunarresources.space/
