Abstract
Mining and excavation technologies must be developed for the establishment of lunar bases that are capable of operating under the severe conditions of the lunar environment. The mining technology research needs for establishing a permanent lunar base utilizing lunar resources are outlined and briefly discussed in this paper. These requirements range from initial exploration needs to those required for gradually reaching full lunar base autarky. The extraterrestrial mining and excavation needs indicate that a multidisciplinary research effort must be initiated early in the lunar base program to provide timely research results for the subsequent development stages.
