COMMERCIAL: For Clients of Lunar Resources Registry
Commercial access is for all Public Access locations, all the latest Planned Missions, Science Zones, and Development Zones.
Development Zones are created to focus on establishing Resources, Infrastructure and Energy Registrations.
Why Development Zones?
The Lunar surface is rich in natural resources, and some locations have a significant infrastructure potential, e.g. for launch pads / ports and communication. We create registrations for commercial entities so that they can formally take part in commercialising the Moon, within existing and new legal frameworks. To date we have created three kinds of Registrations within Development Zones.
Resources (Mining, Energy): Space Resources focussed companies and investors who wish to register a right to explore and extract. This includes mining companies who wish to hedge, or lock-in a long-term Lunar resources rights to explore and extract.
Energy, ISRU: Energy focussed Registrations, including Solar Power locations, Nuclear sites, and resources used for Energy, e.g. Thorium and Helium 3.
Infrastructure: Existing space, upcoming NewSpace and CisLunar, and terrestrial infrastructure and energy companies who wish to register a location as a potential infrastructure supporting operation. These also include logistics, robotic and human presence on the Moon.
