KARI Lunar Exploration Program Team Capabilities and Research Interests

The KARI Lunar Exploration Program endeavors to carry out and support collaborative research in lunar science on the origin and evolution of the Moon, and to support technologies for investigations of the Moon, on the Moon, and from the Moon in the future.

Possible areas of collaboration include:

• Lunar exploration mission design and analysis
• Plasma environments on and around the Moon
• Lunar access via demonstrated small satellite technologies
• Spacecraft engineering for lunar lander modules
• Innovative technology demonstration to support lunar science missions
• Lunar hydrological cycle
• Space Science Instrumentation
• Space Engineering

The KARI Lunar Exploration Program has performed mid- to long-term basic and applied research for the Korea’s space development program and has provided satellite platforms for various space technologies validation and space experiments, since the institute launched Korea’s first small satellite ‘KITSAT-1’ in 1992.
