    Mars Rover

    Published on Jun 22, 2017

    Europe’s first Mars rover will have an unmatched capability to autonomously navigate up to 70 metres a day with no outside guidance from ground control.

    ExoMars is a joint exploration program between the European Space Agency (ESA) and the Russian Space Agency, Roscosmos, that aims to study the Martian environment, atmosphere and soil. It will lead to an enviable data harvest that will feed scientists' research for many years to come. Thales Alenia Space is prime contractor on the ExoMars missions (2016 & 2020).

    ExoMars is ready for science!

    ExoMars is ready for Martian science!

    ESA’s Trace Gas Orbiter mission arrived at Mars in October 2016. After a year spent carefully adjusting its position, the spacecraft is now beginning its science operations.

    The Trace Gas Orbiter’s instruments will be able to look through the atmosphere to identify trace gases – in particular methane – which could indicate signs of past or even present life. The orbiter will also act as a relay for rovers on the Martian surface.

    ExoMars rover self-driving software test

    Published on Jan 17, 2019

    A half-scale version of the ExoMars rover, called ExoMars Testing Rover (ExoTeR), manoeuvred itself carefully through the red rocks and sand of 9x9 m Planetary Utilisation Testbed, part of ESA’s Planetary Robotics Laboratory in its ESTEC technical centre in the Netherlands.

    This was a test of autonomous navigation software destined for ESA’s ExoMars 2020 mission to the red planet. The two-day rover test was conducted by ESA robotic engineers, joined by a team from French space agency CNES in Toulouse. They have more than two decades of experience in autonomous navigation for planetary rovers, culminating in developing the ‘AutoNav’ suite of software that was doing the driving.

    The ExoTeR rover, complete with updated software, is now set to return to Altec in Italy – home of ExoMars 2020’s rover control team – allowing them to gain experience with the added functionality of autonomous navigation ahead of ExoMars’s flight software being completed. ExoMars’s final flight software will actually carry two sets of autonomous navigation software, with another developed by Airbus Defence and Space in Stevenage, UK.
