Paper Abstract

Exploration of the planets has been a long standing mission of the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL). With the Presidentially appointed "National Commission on Space" proposing the eventual colonization and exploitation of the planets as a national policy, the idea of using a planetary rover to explore Mars is gaining interest. Plans are presented here for a potential Mars sample return mission. Major emphasis is placed on the application of work currently being done in Computer Aided Remote Driving and Navigation Fusion technologies at JPL.
