NASA is planning for a mission to mine water on the moon. The proposed Resource Prospector Mission (RPM) is notionally targeted for launch in 2018, and would be NASA’s first attempt to demonstrate in-situ resource utilization (ISRU) beyond Earth. Read more about the proposed RPM mission at Spacenews.com: NASA Planning for Mission to Mine Water on the Moon. PRS provided control, telemetry management, and operator interface software for the Artemis Jr. rover as a member of the Neptec Rover Team.
