HELIOS is developing technologies to extract and utilize metals and oxygen from martian and lunar soil, providing fuel and construction materials for future space missions.

The current weight limitation of equipment for any space mission restricts the chances for long term extraterrestrial human presence. Only by adopting in-situ resource utilization (ISRU) technologies we can realize the vision to set permanent Lunar and Martian bases.

HELIOS was established to actualize the vision of Earth-independent space exploration. This goal can be achieved collecting the vast amount of oxygen and metals available in the surface soil of Mars and The Moon. The oxygen will be stored as fuel oxidizer, the metals will be used to construct the infrastructure for future lunar-martian bases.

ON-SITE RESOURCE UTILIZATION IS THE KEY FOR FUTURE SPACE EXPLORATION AND PERMANENT LUNAR/MARTIAN BASE

MOLTEN REGOLITH ELECTROLYSIS REACTOR

As the heart of the system, the MRE Reactor will separate the abundant oxides found all over the Martian and Lunar surfaces into oxygen and various metals such as Iron, Aluminium, Titanium and more.

The second phase will include the preparation of the raw materials into further utilization – storing the oxygen in compression tanks and casting the metals into usable parts.
