The X PRIZE Foundation announced today that it has selected AGI, producer of analysis software for land, sea, air, and space, as an official "preferred partner" for the Google Lunar X PRIZE. Preferred partners offer discounted services to the teams competing in the $30 million international competition. The Google Lunar X PRIZE challenges privately-funded teams to safely land a robot on the surface of the Moon, travel 500 meters over the lunar surface, and send images and data back to Earth. Under this partnership, AGI has agreed to provide each team with nearly $200,000 worth of complimentary software and engineering services. There are currently four other X PRIZE Foundation preferred partners: Space Exploration Technologies (Preferred Launch Partner), SETI Institute and Universal Space Network (Preferred Communications Partners), and Space Florida (Preferred Launch Site).
