Last week, Mission Control was thrilled to participate in the live announcement made by Minister Champagne that Canada would be sending a micro-rover to the Moon! The event featured CSA President Lisa Campbell and Canadian Astronaut David Saint-Jacques and included the announcement of demonstration funding under CSA’s Lunar Exploration Accelerator Program. Through this program, Mission Control received a $3.04M award to demonstrate our technologies in Artificial Intelligence, robotics, and cloud-based mission operations software, as part of the Emirates Lunar Mission launching in 2022.
