Updated: Jan 24, 2023

Intuitive Machines, LLC (“Intuitive Machines” or the “Company”), a leading space

exploration, infrastructure, and services company, and Japan-based robotics

company, Dymon Co., Ltd. (“Dymon”), 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.
