Spacefarer AI


Deploy artificial intelligence safely and reliably across flight platforms to achieve your mission objectives.

  • Validated & verified space flight heritage on two missions and counting.
  • Ease of use and simplified deployment across different flight platforms and software packages.
  • Customer support across AIT, commissioning, and deployment, optimized for mission performance.

Spacefarer AI has deployed deep learning neural networks on flight computers for two missions: in Earth orbit and on the lunar surface. Our AI team has also supported several concept studies and field tests to offer AI-based autonomy.

Our Story

Modern AI approaches are a game changer for spacecraft autonomy, but to use them we needed tools and techniques that work with space missions, such as our MoonNet AI model that was deployed on a lunar mission in 2023.

MoonNet is designed to rapidly classify lunar surface features in camera images, enabling a wide range of autonomous tasks from navigation to instrument targeting.

However, as we moved towards deploying MoonNet on a flight processor, we discovered several challenges.

Worlds First

Mission Control was the first organization in the world to deploy a deep-learning Artificial Intelligence (AI) in lunar orbit.

In early 2023, we completed our first in-flight test of how Spacefarer AI can deploy AI models, leveraging the OPS-SAT satellite by the European Space Agency.
