GLXP News: Omega Envoy Adds Another Sponsor

omega_envoyORLANDO, FLA., March 25, 2013 (ESI PR) — Earthrise Space Inc. (ESI), parent organization of the Omega Envoy team in the Google Lunar X PRIZE, is proud to announce that it has gained a new ‘Suborbital Level’ sponsor, SURFCAM, Inc. and their parent company, Vero Software.

The United Kingdom-based Vero Software and the California-based SURFCAM, Inc. are contributing to Omega Envoy’s goal of landing a rover on the lunar surface by providing high-efficiency CNC milling software. This software includes a full 5-axis SURFCAM CAD/CAM system with TRUEMill roughing capabilities, which will allow ESI to refine their CNC milling process, enhancing quality and speed while minimizing tool ware.

“We are delighted to sponsor and contribute CAD/CAM technologies to a stellar organization such as Earthrise Space, Inc.”, say Peter Marton of Surfcam, Inc. “Developing space technology by collaboration between industries and students is a philosophy we highly esteem since it provides the real world learning and hands-on experience that young, emerging professionals require for future employment in the entrepreneurial space industry.”

ESI will be receiving the highest level of support from 2011 North American SURFCAM Reseller of the Year, CAMCAD Technologies in Winter Springs, FL, to implement, train and provide the post processing solutions.

With this new software, ESI will be able to reduce costs while producing quality parts from scratch in record time. In supporting ESI, Vero Software and SURFCAM, Inc. will also be able to proudly promote their essential role in landing a rover on the moon.
