Cambridge, MA, USA – Lunar Station Corporation (“LSC”) and Watts, Griffis and McOuat Ltd. (“WGM”) are joining forces to co-develop a new premium offering delivered through LSC’s powerful data analytics platform, MoonHacker™. The Premium offering will allow de-risked mission planning by introducing a multi-disciplinary approach, resulting in significant enhancements to the predictive analytical modeling of the location of both lunar water and volatile deposits. These deposits will define the Lunar economy in the near future.
Lunar Station has years of experience providing secure, cutting-edge Lunar Intelligence tailored to the unique requirements of Commercial and Government Agencies.
“Anyone can get public access to available orbital data sets; however, converting it to useable intelligence in a user-friendly interface is another thing all together”, explains Jeff Plate, Vice-President WGM.
“We’ve been told by global mission planners that there’s a critical gap in understanding exactly where lunar operations will occur.” says Blair DeWitt, CEO Lunar Station Corp, he continues “We are thrilled to announce today that our strategic relationship with WGM to develop new predictive analytical solutions for supporting lunar operations closes this gap for our clients in a way that is truly special.”
WGM has over 60 years experience in global prospecting, exploration, and mining supplemented with 20 years of experience in space mining/in-situ resource utilization. Via its Water Works think-tank, WGM has developed ground-breaking theoretical lunar water and volatile depositional models which incorporate sedimentary geological processes, geomorphology, geochemistry, geophysics, and physical chemistry & physics. The models, backed up by orbital and ground observations, form the backbone of the new offering. “Combining WGM’s deep understanding of lunar geology with their extensive experience in terrestrial mineral exploration with LSC’s expertise and depth in lunar data analytics creates powerful synergies in predictive technologies”, added Blair DeWitt, CEO Lunar Station.
By summer, LSC will be launching its Premium MoonHacker™ offering which will allow any firm looking to plan surface missions to the Moon to de-risk by applying Premium MoonHacker™’s powerful insights to identify the best place to find resources, plan landings, build, and conduct operations.
