Canada looks to build next moon rover
Canwest News Service
“Canada is quietly putting together a proposal to build NASA an all-Canadian moon rover – a vehicle with a pressurized air cabin that astronauts could use without wearing bulky helmets and air tanks. One space industry executive says this could be Canada’s next big area of expertise after the Canadarms.
“Ottawa’s Neptec Design Group, which is already testing a laser guidance system for an unmanned American moon rover, is also leading a team designing a separate, Canadian vehicle. MDA Corp., which built the Canadarms and Radarsat satellites, is also working on its own proposed lunar rover.”
