Canadian technologies on the Moon

2024-02-15 - Three Canadian companies have received funding from the Canadian Space Agency to test their technologies in the harsh environment of the Moon.

Canadensys Aerospace Corporation will demonstrate an AI-enabled operational lunar 360-degree imaging system, including multiple cameras. 

Mission Control will test two technologies: an AI algorithm to classify types of lunar geological features and a software for remote operations on deep-space missions.
