Borebots: Tetherless Drilling

Project Type

NASA Innovative Advanced Concepts Study


Jan. 2021 - Oct. 2023

Borebots offers a breakthrough approach to Martian subsurface exploration. Sidestepping traditional drill constraints by using self-driving autonomy, these drillers operate sequentially to optimize wear distribution and battery charging cycles. This key innovation has the potential to reshape the search for life in our solar system.

Beyond Mars, borebots' adaptability shines: from ocean access on Enceladus with barrel-sized units, to staged deployments for a Pluto-ocean-Hail-Mary, this NASA Innovative Advanced Concepts (NIAC) concept is truly changing the possible.
