Capabilities payload: All you need to know about the UAE’s Moon Mission

The first Arab mission to the Moon, the Rashid Rover, is set to become a new lunar visitor landing on Earth’s closest neighbor’s surface in the fourth quarter of 2022.

The final phase of the rover’s testing is now complete, and the lunar lander launch has his November 9-15 target window.

What will the Mission 1 lander do? who will operate it?

A mission to the UAE’s moon is scheduled to begin in November this year. Japan-based ispace Inc., which will land the Rashid rover on the moon, previously announced that the company’s Mission 1 (M1) will take off from Cape Canaveral, Florida, on his SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket.

After launch, M1 will operate from her Hakuto-R Mission Control Center (MCC) in Tokyo’s Nihonbashi central business district.

The MCC monitors the lander’s attitude, temperature and other conditions. Send commands and data to the lander. Receive imagery and video data during transit to and from the Moon.

Where will the rover land?

The moon’s temperature fluctuates greatly between day and night, and one of the biggest challenges for the rover is to survive the moon’s harsh environment, which can reach minus 200 degrees Celsius.

A video of him released by the Dubai government news agency in early March shows him successfully navigating the sands of the desert day and night.

How this information can useful?

Images of the lane from a rear-mounted French camera are analyzed to identify wheel subsidence and to study wheel-soil interactions in detail.

Such data will be important in designing future rover mobility systems.

The project is also an important part of the UAE’s space exploration strategy, with a focus on building new knowledge capabilities, inspiring future generations, pursuing space science and exploration, and promoting global cooperation. I’m putting
