Conduct numerous scientific tests on the surface of the Moon that will contribute to developments in the fields of science, communication technologies and robotics.
Compoxi manufactured an ultra-light and ultra-stiff complex CFRP (Carbon fiber reinforced polymer) structure for the lunar rover’s body.
Rover made for the Mohammed Bin Rashid Space Center (MBRSC) in the framework of the first UAE’s lunar mission. The rover was transported to the Moon on Ispace’s lunar lander on the Japanese commercial Mission “Hakuto-R Mission 1”.
Rashid Rover was successfully assembled in MBRSC. Later, on December 11th 2022, the rover was launched from Cape Canaveral inside the “Hakuto-R Mission 1” lander and it took around 3 months to reach the moon.
Unfortunately, on April 25th of 2023, the Hakuto-R Mission 1 Lunar Lander had a failed landing attempt. Nonetheless, Compoxi’s implication was successful since it was capable to build and deliver an ultralight structure suitable for lunar exploration.
This success case also counts with the participation of Mobammed Bin Rashid Space Center and Ispace
