The $300,000 contract was awarded by NASA for Xylem to provide special mass spectrometry technology with the ultimate goal of detecting water on the moon.

“We are delighted that NASA has awarded Xylem this contract to help them further explore the moon,” said Chris McIntire, president of Xylem Analytics. “We believe that our CMS mass spectrometer is a great example of innovative technology that meets an important customer need and we are proud to be part of NASA’s continuing lunar exploration.”

NASA is currently developing a rover-based system under its RESOLVE program to analyze for water and other chemical compounds in moon dust on a possible future lunar mission. Xylem will provide a miniaturized sector-field mass spectrometer that incorporates its patented array detector called the IonCCD™* for the detection of water and other target compounds.
