Hakuto Rover Technology

360 VISIBILITY

The rover’s camera system uses four cameras that capture images from 360º for both research and maneuvering.

HYBRID COMMUNICATION

The hybrid communication architecture combines the 900MHz and 2.4 GHz frequencies for connectivity and speed.

CARBON FIBER ENFORCED PLASTIC

Carbon-fiber enforced plastic (CFRP), makes up the rover’s body. It offers unparalleled weight savings and strength.

SOLAR PANELS

Lightweight solar panels positioned on either side of the rover offer more exposure to sunlight.

ULTEM RESIN

We’ve 3D printed the rover’s wheels from ULTEM, which can handle extreme heat and offers strength and rigidity.

TRACKED WHEELS

The powder-like sand of the Moon presents new challenges for mobility, so we developed wheels with grouser tracks.
