National Aeronautics and Space Administration Lunar Surface Technology Research (LuSTR) Opportunities

NASA’s Space Technology Mission Directorate (STMD) hereby solicits proposals from accredited U.S. universities for innovative lunar surface space technology research and development of high priority to NASA’s Mission Directorates. The goal of the LuSTR endeavor is to accelerate the development of groundbreaking technologies that support and enable lunar surface activities to be conducted both by NASA and the commercial space sector under Artemis – the core of NASA’s exploration and human spaceflight plans for the next decade. The LuSTR Appendix solicits efforts that can be integrated into Artemis’ sequence of missions that start with the near-term development of enabling infrastructure and lay the foundation for a sustained human and robotic presence.
