Five Teams Win NASA DALI Awards to Advance Future Lunar Missions

02.20.2019
The agency’s Development and Advancement of Lunar Instrumentation, or DALI, program recently awarded 10 teams each about $4 million in funding to mature spacecraft based instruments for use in future lander missions including those offered by commercial ventures. These instruments, which are supposed to have reached a high level of technology readiness by the time funding ends in three years, will support scientific investigations, human exploration, lunar mining, and other in-situ lunar-resource activities. Of the 10 awards, half went to teams involving Goddard experts, who are either serving as principal investigators or co-investigators. The five teams are Submillimeter Solar Observation Lunar Volatiles Experiment (SSOLVE), Characterization of Regolith and Trace Economic Resources (CRATER), Bulk Elemental Composition Analyzer (BECA), Potassium-Argon Laser Experiment (KArLE), and Lunar Environment Monitoring Station (LEMS). Congratulations to these teams! Read more starting at page 5 of Cutting Edge.

Overview

The Sciences and Exploration Directorate is the largest Earth and space science research organization in the world. Its scientists advance understanding of the Earth and its life-sustaining environment, the Sun, the solar system, and the wider universe beyond. The Directorate is part of Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland.

Researchers in the Sciences and Exploration Directorate work with engineers, computer programmers, technologists, and other team members to develop the cutting-edge technology needed for space-based research. Instruments are also deployed on aircraft, balloons, and Earth's surface.

The Directorate's researchers share their findings and data with the scientific community. Education and Public Outreach programs explain the science to students and the general public.
