The RE-RASSOR Project is a joint FSI, Florida Space Grant and NASA project to develop, mature and extend the EZ-RASSOR Software and the Mini-RASSOR Hardware.
The UCF Industrial Engineering Team investigated RE-RASSOR like robots and developed a throughput and process model for using them to support the acquisition and utilization of In Situ resources on the Moon.
The ISRU (In Situ Resource Utilization) Performance team created a discrete event simulation for lunar resources and the intended harvester and refinery systems. The simulation includes rover transit times, raw material locations, material characteristic (depth, % water, travel time) prospecting systems and beneficiation systems. This allows investigation of ISRU system performance and associated sensitivities to resource locations, resource quality, deployed systems and overall process time.
