American manned lunar rover. Study 1999.

Status: Study 1999.

University of Texas at Austin concept for an inflatable pressurized lunar rover using parabolic space trusses to suspend the passenger cabin and join it to independently powered and remotely controllable wheel trucks. This allowed multiple configurations and ease of system assembly.

The pressure vessel was an inflatable structure based on the Transhab concept developed for NASA. Four independent and remotely controllable wheel trucks provided locomotion, with four wheels per truck. The conceptual design was not carried through to an estimate of system masses.
