Earthrise Space Foundation (ESF) is a non-profit corporation dedicated to developing space technology in collaboration with industry and academic institutions. ESF seeks to leverage experience gained through its Omega Envoy project to create the first viable commercial lunar delivery service to support future space transportation infrastructure.
ESF provides services to private companies, government agencies, and educational institutions that have the resources to explore space and are looking for low cost products to meet their mission requirements. ESF engagement of university students in this work enhances student access to technology and increases educational interest amongst our future workforce. Through the Google Lunar X PRIZE (GLXP) and government contracts such as the Innovative Lunar Demonstrations Data (ILDD) Contract from NASA, ESF’s initiatives enable the creation of new technology and systems to support lunar exploration while increasing the Technology Readiness Level (TRL) of innovative, commercial space systems.
