Below is a list of CLPS deliveries and lunar surface destinations that are planned for the near-term and represent the deliveries for which there are selected instruments/payloads. Those that are already on contract with CLPS vendors identify the commercial vendor company and its lander. Click on each delivery for more information about the payloads and expected scientific return.
CP-21 – TBD Lander to Gruithuisen Domes
CP-22 – TBD Lander to South Pole
Note on CLPS Naming Conventions: Initial CLPS Task Order names were named after either task order numbers (e.g. TO2-AB) or the expected year and letter the task orders were to go out (e.g. 19C released as the third activity in 2019). The current naming scheme is focused on the delivery method, the lead organization/procurement for that delivery, the number in the series of that org/procurement and, if needed, the number from that particular procurement. For example, CP-22 stands for CLPS, PRISM-2, 2nd selection from that PRISM-2 call. CS-3 is the third CLPS task order from SMD. Other potential names will be “CT-#” for CLPS deliveries led by Space Technology Mission Directorate (STMD) or “CX-#” for Exploration Systems Development Mission Directorate (ESDMD) led deliveries.
