Lunar Resources proposes to NASArsquo;s SBIR program the In-Situ Casting of Standard Structural Elements on the Moon (ICSE) program to mature a process to cast standard lunar extracted ISRU metal structural elements on the Moon without earth-based consumables. The goal of the effort is to develop the capability of casting in-situ produced metals into truss elementsnbsp;to produce trusses with varying widths, lengths, and thicknesses. nbsp;The focus of the effort is to mature the equipment and production process to efficiently producenbsp;truss elements without any consumables from Earth. nbsp;Furthermore, the equipment and process will be matured for casting of other metals, such as iron, to produce other structural element geometries.
