Benefits

  • New products and systems to enable survival of the extremely cold lunar night
  • Expertise in spacecraft thermal design, analysis, construction and testing
  • Enabling governments and private companies to explore and utilise resources on the Moon.

Technology

Moonlode’s key product is an integrated thermal control subsystem for spacecraft, maintaining the temperature of critical components within certain specified bounds during extended periods of extreme cold. The system incorporates new methods for generating a trickle of heat within the system enclosure as well as methods to reject excessive heat during periods of solar illumination and/or high electrical energy dissipation.

Potential markets

The primary markets are space exploration and in the future space resources extraction and utilisation.

Partnering opportunities

Moonlode seeks companies and government agencies that are planning lunar missions for science, exploration, or resource extraction/utilisation.

IP status

All IP required to commercially exploit the products will be retained by Moonlode.
