Abstract
A use of the energy transmission system is proposed to supply the scientific rover to confirm the existence of ice on the moon at the bottom of craters in the lunar polar region, where no sun light reaches at all through the year and it is a cryogenic environment. A small system model has been fabricated that it is principally possible. A full size rover model is now going on and 100 m energy transmission experiment will be done soon. Major technological problems to be solve to realize the system in the actual lunar exploration is also discussed.
