Spacebit is a UK-based space startup developing space robotic technology and space data analytics tools for space exploration that includes advanced micro robotics and Artificial Intelligence (AI). Their approach to engineering is to deliver competitive cost solutions for the exploration of celestial bodies.
Spacebit's goal is to create new opportunities for industry, academia, and government, advancing the future development of a new infrastructure and commercial resource exploration 'offworld' - beginning with the Moon.
The company's micro-rover technologies and rover deployment systems are designed to carry scientific payloads in support of the Artemis Program space exploration and research goals. Spacebit is the only commercial company to secure two consecutive NASA Commercial Lunar Payload Services (CLPS) delivery missions to the Moon in 2021/2022.Spacebit is one of the first commercial lunar companies that plan to fly on every NASA CLPS delivery on the market.
Future versions of the rover would be sent to explore tubular cave structures – subsurface tunnels, believed to have been formed by ancient basaltic lava flows – to see if they are viable locations in which to build future lunar habitats for human presence on the moon.For more information on the challenge please head to the Spacebit Engineering Challenge page
