WeSpace Technologies – transforming lunar exploration

WeSpace Technologies, a pioneering Israeli SpaceTech company in the field of lunar exploration, is revolutionizing space missions with their cutting-edge Autonomously Flying Robotic Systems. Dubbed as “hoppers,” these thruster-propelled drones are set to transform the way we navigate and explore the lunar surface.


Traditionally, ground vehicles faced numerous challenges when traversing the Moon’s treacherous terrain. WeSpace Technologies has tackled this issue head-on by ingeniously incorporating flying capabilities into their hoppers. Their groundbreaking mobility solution enables these hoppers to soar above obstacles that would otherwise impede conventional rovers. Powered or ballistic flight arcs, exploiting the Moon’s modest gravitational acceleration, grant these hoppers unmatched maneuverability in even the harshest conditions.


What sets WeSpace’s family of lunar hoppers apart is their remarkable ability to cover vast areas that were previously inaccessible to conventional rovers. This expanded coverage greatly enhances the mapping capabilities of the Moon, revolutionizing our understanding of its surface and resources. Moreover, the hoppers’ capacity to explore rough terrains and uncharted territories opens doors to unprecedented discoveries and opportunities.

“Our slogan is ‘going where nobody has been before’ and it’s a motto that we continue to stand by as we enhance our innovative technologies,” said Yifat Feffer, co-founder of WeSpace Technologies. 

With a commitment to accessibility, WeSpace Technologies offers their disruptive technological marvels at cost-effective prices. Partners aspiring to explore the Moon and harness its resources can now leverage the advantages of thruster-propelled drones, especially for missions requiring access to challenging areas such as lava tubes and Permanently Shadowed Regions (PSRs). It is within these PSRs, known to harbor water ice, that the hoppers truly shine. They not only effortlessly hover over these permanently shadowed regions but are able to penetrate the surface and explore the interior terrain where radio communication is unavailable, generating invaluable data that promises to reshape our understanding of lunar resources.


According to WeSpace, the applications of their robotic systems go far beyond exploration. These hoppers, equipped with scientific and engineering sensors, will search for potential habitation sites and both partake in the activity of mining and extracting resources such as metals, rare earth elements, and water ice to gain valuable data in hard-to-reach areas that were previously beyond our technological reach. If approved, currently, WeSpace serves as one of the leading nominees to represent Israel in the prestigious Artemis program—an extraordinary opportunity in the rapidly expanding lunar economy. The company has already engaged in discussions with NASA Ames project managers, confident that their groundbreaking technology aligns perfectly with the agency’s ambitious Moon-to-Mars objectives.

“We are thrilled that our first mission could be with NASA Ames, and we are grateful for everyone who has helped us make this happen. It will be an incredible international contribution to humanity,” said Feffer.

The WeSpace team consists of several SpaceTech industry experts such as CTO and co-founder, Yigal Harel, who was the VP of Engineering on Beresheet, the first Israeli spacecraft to travel beyond Earth’s orbit and was the first privately funded landing on the moon. The imminent arrival of WeSpace’s hopper-like facility is poised to be a game changer, revolutionizing lunar exploration and resource utilization. As WeSpace positions itself for selection in the Artemis program, they are taking a prominent role in shaping the future of lunar missions. The possibilities for discovery and advancement seem limitless as WeSpace paves the way for a new era of lunar exploration and propels humanity towards the stars.

“We are very proud of the breakthroughs we’ve made thus far,” said Feffer. “We look forward to what we can do for Israel and the future of space exploration. For anyone who is interested in taking part in our project in any way, whether it be as an engineer, an investor, a business thinker, or otherwise, do not hesitate to reach out.”
