Intuitive Machines to fly Dymon Lunar Rover to the Moon

Intuitive Machines, LLC, a leading space exploration, infrastructure, and services company, and Japan-based robotics company, Dymon Co., Ltd., have signed an agreement to fly Dymon’s Yaoki rover on Intuitive Machines’ second mission to the Moon.

Yaoki is expected to be flown to the lunar south pole on board Intuitive Machines’ Nova-C lunar lander in the second half of 2023. After landing, Yaoki is expected to deploy from Nova-C to demonstrate Dymon’s lunar mobility technology designed by its Founder and Chief Executive Officer, Shin-ichiro Nakajima.

The agreement with Dymon leverages Intuitive Machines’ Lunar Access Services and Lunar Data Services business segments to land the Yaoki rover on the Moon and control it via secure lunar communications.

“The commercial demand for lunar access is growing with each of Intuitive Machines’ four planned missions,” said Steve Altemus, Co-Founder, President, and Chief Executive Officer of Intuitive Machines. “The addition of Dymon’s Yaoki rover is another critical step towards Intuitive Machines participating in the creation and definition of the lunar economy.”

Completion of the transaction is subject to approval by Inflection Point’s shareholders, the registration statement on Form S-4 being declared effective by the Securities and Exchange Commission, and other customary closing conditions.
