Excavation is a necessary first step towards lunar resource utilization, and the unique physical properties of lunar regolith make excavation a difficult technical challenge. Advances in lunar regolith extraction have the potential to contribute significantly to the nation’s space exploration operations. Teams competing in the 2007 Lunar Regolith Excavation Challenge will build autonomously operating systems to excavate lunar regolith and deliver it to a collector. This Challenge will be conducted in a ‘‘head-to-head’’ competition format. Teams will be challenged to excavate and deliver as much regolith as possible in 30 minutes. II.
