Lunar X-ray Imaging Spectrometer (LuXIS)

Lunar X-ray Imaging Spectrometer (LuXIS) is a SmallSat mission concept with a compact, highly radiation-tolerant, focusing X-ray telescope that identifies and spatially maps lunar crust and mantle materials excavated by impact craters, and also serves as a pathfinder for autonomous precision deep-space navigation using X-ray pulsars.
