Team FREDNET is an open source team competing for the Google Lunar X PRIZE.
The team's current mission architecture consists of a Lunar Bus carrying a Lunar Lander to lunar orbit. In lunar orbit, the spacecraft will scan the lunar surface for one of the heritage Apollo landing sites. Once located, the lander will detach and initiate descent and, eventually, soft-landing. Once safely landed, the lander will deploy a small robotic roving vehicle. The rover will be designed to travel minumum of 500 meters in the lunar regolith, sending back images from its journey to the lander. The lander, in turn, will maintain communications with ground stations back on Earth.
