A light and small form factor lunar rover platform holds a significant promise of benefits for NASA (National Aeronautics and Space Administration) both financially and scientifically. The LMR (Lunar Micro Rover) project is an attempt to design such a platform on a low budget. This report outlines the progress of the LMR team made between August 2007 and December 2007 in software and decisions relating to software. This time frame encompasses Prototype 3, 4, and some planning of 5, the demonstration for Director Worden, image compression work, and VxWorks work. This report also provides a basic background of events that led up to this work beginning with the MAX (Mobile Autonamous eXploration) LMR demonstration in the Atacama Desert (2006).
