Hakuto Rover Technology
The rover’s camera system uses four cameras that capture images from 360º for both research and maneuvering.
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.
Lightweight solar panels positioned on either side of the rover offer more exposure to sunlight.
We’ve 3D printed the rover’s wheels from ULTEM, which can handle extreme heat and offers strength and rigidity.
The powder-like sand of the Moon presents new challenges for mobility, so we developed wheels with grouser tracks.
