NovAtel and the Mars Rovers
Unmanned Robotic Vehicle
NASA’s Mars Exploration Program is a long-term robotic exploration effort seeking to assess the habitability of the red planet. The goal was to develop an unmanned robotic vehicle capable of collecting information that would help determine whether Mars ever had an environment able to support small life forms called microbes. From its early days, contributors to the Mars rover missions have utilized NovAtel GNSS receivers and antennas in their project work and testing applications.
