Technology and knowledge sharing between sectors, skills development and STEM for remote operations

The AROSE consortium has been chosen for Stage 1 of the flagship Trailblazer mission. NASA has asked Australia, through the Australian Space Agency, to provide a Lunar Foundation Services Rover for a future mission. This is Trailblazer.

The Trailblazer mission requires the rover to be operated remotely to collect lunar soil and deliver it to NASA’s processing facility on the Moon to extract oxygen. This is a critical step in supporting a sustainable human presence on the Moon and Mars.

The AROSE consortium is one of two successful teams chosen for Stage 1 of the flagship Trailblazer mission.

In Trailblazer Stage 1, the successful applicants are developing foundation services rover solutions – through early mission phases to Preliminary Design Review.

Trailblazer Stage 2 will see a single successful applicant, selected from Trailblazer Stage 1, take their foundation services rover to launch and the lunar operations phase.

We speak to AROSE Program Director Michelle Keegan. Michelle has over 20 years of mining industry experience, and joins AROSE from her previous position as Program Director Technology Development, and leader of the Next Generation Mine Innovation Program, at South 32.

AROSE has also formed a partnership with US-based MILO Space Science Institute to bring its 12-week online course to Australia for the first time.

The MILO Mission Academy is designed for students from TAFE and universities, as well as early career professionals. Graduates will be able to take the skills they acquire in the Mission Academy and apply them across multiple industries throughout their careers, not just in the Space sector.

The MILO Institute is a research collaborative led by Arizona State University (ASU). The MILO Mission Academy, delivered by ASU’s School of Earth and Space Exploration, provides unique, hands-on learning and insight into the dynamic world of Space.
