We envision millions of smart robots working under human supervision on and offworld, turning the inner solar system into a better, gentler, greener place for life and civilization.

OffWorld’s robots measure around two feet in length, weigh around 53 kilos, and boast a power capacity of around 13.5 kWh. They are designed to be small and robust enough to neatly pack into and survive launches on rockets. Care has been paid to making sure they will be able to operate in a variety of non-Earth environments, including the moon, Mars and even the surface of asteroids without requiring a major redesign.
OffWorld Robotic Lunar Mining CONOPS for NASA Break the Ice Challenge 2021.
Joined Team L3 for the Phase 2 of the NASA Space Robotics Challenge! Team L3 and OffWorld will develop software solutions to enable a team of up to six rovers to explore a virtual simulation of the Lunar South Pole, find regions with high concentrations of volatiles, excavate those from the regolith and transport them to the processing plants.
