ODU-USA Proud to Participate in NASA's Mars Exploration Program

Mühldorf am Inn,

The Mars 2020 Perseverance rover mission is part of NASA's Mars Exploration Program, a long-term effort of robotic exploration of the Red Planet.

The Mars 2020 mission addresses high-priority science goals for Mars exploration, including the search for past microbial life and the collection of rock and soil samples for a possible return to Earth. Perseverance will test new technology for future robotic and human missions to the Red Planet. That includes an autopilot for avoiding landing site hazards called Terrain Relative Navigation and a set of sensors for gathering data during the landing. A new autonomous navigation system will allow the rover to drive faster in challenging terrain.

ODU is proud to participate in NASA’s Mars Exploration Program and to provide their high-speed & high-density connector solutions. The M2020 spacecraft utilizes ODU AMC® High-Density connectors to transmit the video of the parachute inflating in the Martian atmosphere and the separation of the rover from the Descent Stage (aka rocket jet pack).

You can follow along with the landing of the Perseverance rover at the following location:

The Perseverance Rover landed successfully on Mars on Feb. 18, 2021. The mission duration is at least one Mars year (about 687 Earth days).
