The Artemis program, developed by NASA, plans to send one man and one woman to the Moon in 2025.
The two astronauts will travel in a new lunar vehicle, looking for a site suitable for setting up a base camp for further exploration.
Michelin said participating in the program offered an opportunity to acquire new knowledge in terms of mobility solutions and "stimulated" its innovation capacities.
The company said it will rely on its "high-technology materials" and the know-how acquired in the development of the Tweel for the development of the lunar tire. Michelin's Tweel, a name combining both tire and wheel, has been used on lawn and garden equipment on earth, while the company also has worked with General Motors Co. to build other puncture-proof tires based on the Tweel concept.
