Registration: Public / Non-Commercial
Actual Presence: This includes existing locations of Landers and Rovers. These Registrations are Free, and safety zones of 4km radius / 8km diameter are marked to ensure these areas are not to be interfered with.
Some Actual Presence Registrations include Heritage zones, like the manned Apollo Missions, or are potential hazard locations, like scatted debris from impacts of hardware.
Actual Presence include the U.S., USSR / Russia, and now China.
Impact Zones: The Moon is home to many impact sites, from early missions to disused hardware and recent failures. These are impact areas for both intentional planned crashes and mission failures. These are potential hazard locations, including scatted debris from impacts of hardware.
Heritage Areas: Currently include manned Apollo Mission locations, safety zones of 5km radius / 10km diameter are marked to ensure these areas are not to be interfered with.
Registration Type: Public / Planned Lunar Activity
Planned Landers: We map the race to the Moon!
Explore the latest missions to the Lunar surface. This includes the planned locations for Landers (including space transport and logistics companies) to deliver payloads.
This list is updated frequently as Mission concepts change and launch manifests are updated.
Note: This list may not be reliable, as Landers may overshoot planned locations, and many lander locations are merely assumed in a planned target area.
Science Missions: Current registrations include a Far-Side Asteroid Observatory and Near-Side Earth Observatory.
Development Zones: These are designated areas that are under active development and analysis, e.g. LRR is identifying resources registrations. These Zones are created to focus on establishing Resources, Infrastructure and Energy Registrations.
Registration Type: Commercial Registrations as a Service
Our focus is on companies and investors who wish to register an intent explore and extract.
Energy: Areas ideal to explore and extract resources for Energy, and establish an Energy producing facility.
ISRU Mining: Prospective in-situ resources utilization locations.
Logistics CisLunar: Registrations that focus on the emerging CisLunar Logistical supply-chain, including Planned Landers and missions.
Space Agencies: Previous Space Agency locations and future landing zones
Resources Registrations: For Space Resources (Mining) focussed companies and investors who wish to register their intention to explore and extract resources. This includes mining companies who wish to hedge, or lock-in a long-term Lunar resources.
Infrastructure: Existing space, upcoming NewSpace and CisLunar, and terrestrial infrastructure companies who want to register a location as a potential infrastructure operation. This includes supporting mining, habitats, communications, and much more.
Energy Registrations: From Nuclear energy sites to permanently sunlit areas ideal for Solar Panels, Energy Registrations are ideal for existing Energy companies and new Space Energy companies that need to find and secure a location for their Lunar-based energy producing and storing operations.
Question: How does a Registration change status?
Registrations: This is the main focus of the LRR, to register entities.
Verified: Once a Registrant has landed an object (e.g. spacecraft, hardware) into their Registered area, and the object’s location has been verified, the Registration is now Verified.
Operational: When a Registrant has an operational activity in their Registration, it is Operational- This includes functioning or hibernating operations, e.g. science experiments, exploration or extraction operations.
