ICE Cubes Service is a simple and cost-effective way for your experiment or technology to fly onboard the International Space Station.
Service - ICE Cubes, LUVMI
- Commercial Rover
- ISS Utilization Service
- 1) Active
- First launch
You can develop your own experiment in one of the standard form factors. For this, you will use the set of interface standards, safety requirements and guidelines defined by the service.
During flight, users are able to have near real-time telemetry and telecommanding capabilities with the Experiment Cube from any location with an internet connection.
The Lunar Volatiles Mobile Instrumentation (LUVMI) rover family provides a smart, low mass, innovative, modular and extendable platform designed to accommodate payloads and provide payload mobility on the moon. It is tele-operated with optional autonomous modes to allow for faster traverses and for safety when entering Permanently Shadowed Regions.
The rover is designed for operation in polar regions of the moon. Platform mass is 40 kg and may accommodate 30- 40 kg of payload mass. Power Onboard solar panels generate up to 180W of which more than 50% are available for payloads.
