Furthermore NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) is also likely to release images of the lander Vikram, as mentioned in reports by US media. Noah Petro, LRO's project scientist told spaceflightnow that NASA will share images to help ISRO's analysis. Petro said "NASA will share any before and after flyover imagery of the area around the targeted Chandrayaan-2 vikram lander landing site to support analysis by the Indian Space Research Organization”.

Previously NASA had also tried establishing contact with lander vikram lying on the lunar surface and the agency's Jet Propulsion laboratory had beamed a radio frequency to the lander to elicit a response. A sources said "NASA/JPL is trying to contact vikram through its deep space network (DSN) as contractually agreed with ISRO".
