The Volatile and Mineralogy Mapping Orbiter, VMMO, developed by MPB Communications Inc, Surrey Space Centre, University of Winnipeg and Lens R&D would comprise a single 12-unit CubeSat to map lunar surface minerals and frozen volatiles including water ice to 10 m resolution using a ‘laser radar’ lidar able to peer into shadowed regions at the poles. VMMO was one of the two winners of an ESA General Studies Programme SysNova contest to design CubeSat missions to the Moon.
