Abstract Scope In order to support long duration missions on the Moon’s surface, materials resistant to the harsh lunar environment are critically needed. Lunar dust poses a major threat to the durability of components and vehicles due to its fine, jagged morphology and highly abrasive nature, enabling the particles to adhere and embed onto surfaces of components and devices and potentially leading to premature failure. There is significant effort within NASA to develop novel materials and coating technologies to mitigate lunar dust adhesion and abrasion. This effort has been exploring a variety of production routes and examining properties of candidate material systems, including ceramic, metallic and polymeric. Manufacturing methods investigated include ceramic powder processing, additive manufacturing and surface modification via laser ablation patterning of bulk materials and coatings. An overview of ongoing NASA materials and coating research and development efforts to enable lunar surface exploration will be presented.
