In the coming year, a first prototype and certain technological elements are to be built, which will be subjected to various tests from the fiscal year 2021 onwards. The aim is to launch a manned space mission as early as 2029 after further testing, improvements and the development of models ready for series production.
Toyota also gave details of the schedule, at least for the next couple of years. According to that, in fiscal year 2019, the technological elements required for driving on the lunar surface are to be identified; in addition, the specifications of the Rover prototype are to be worked out.
For the fiscal year 2020, the project partners are planning the production of test components for the technical elements and the manufacture of the prototype. In fiscal year 2012, the test components will be tested and the results subsequently evaluated.
