Lunar Orbiting Platform — Gateway
NASA plans to build a Deep Space Gateway (DSG) that would be a small outpost orbiting the moon and would act as a “spaceport for human and robotic exploration to the moon and beyond”. Crewed by four people, it would provide an operational platform for further exploring the lunar surface and a hub to deeper space destinations. NASA hopes to have the completed Gateway in lunar orbit as early as 2024.
The radio amateur community could be involved with projects such as ham radio communication, equipment development, education and public outreach.
