In September of 2022 during the MVA Open Floor Meeting at the IAC-73, the Moon Village Association (MVA) in cooperation with the leading Ukrainian space engineering company – Yuzhnoye State Design Office launched the 2nd PromoMoon Initiative for Moon Village Generation in honor of Dr. Alexander Degtyarev – aimed to inspire the new generation of inventors to develop ideas for future sustainable lunar activities and provide an opportunity to advance the engineering maturity level.
The initiative received proposals from teams of individuals and startups from 6 different countries presenting novel ideas, concepts, and solutions on lunar technologies falling under the following categories: 1) transportation to and from the Moon, 2) transportation on the Moon, 3) Power systems for the Moon infrastructure (production, storage, distribution), 4) Infrastructure, construction, and ISRU on the Moon, and 5) Other.
