About Exomars Rover. (Astrium/EADS)

Under the new cooperation between ESA and Roscosmos, the two space agencies have agreed to send a large capsule to Mars with a single rover carrying both European and Russian instruments. A number of intensive studies to establish the optimum configuration for the revised single rover concept are in progress.

The ExoMars Rover provides key mission capabilities: surface mobility, subsurface drilling and automatic sample collection, processing, and distribution to instruments. It hosts a suite of analytical instruments dedicated to exobiology and geochemistry research: this is the Pasteur payload.

The Rover uses solar panels to generate the required electrical power, and is designed to survive the cold Martian nights with the help of novel batteries and heater units.

Due to the infrequent communication opportunities, only 1 or 2 short sessions per sol (Martian day), the ExoMars Rover is highly autonomous. Scientists on Earth will designate target destinations on the basis of compressed stereo images acquired by the cameras mounted on the Rover mast.

The Rover must then calculate navigation solutions and safely travel approximately 100 m per sol. To achieve this, it creates digital maps from navigation stereo cameras and computers a suitable trajectory. Close-up collision avoidance cameras are used to ensure safety.

The locomotion is achieved through six wheels. Each wheel pair is suspended on an independently pivoted bogie (the articulated assembly holding the wheel drives), and each wheel can be independently steered and driven. All wheels can be individually pivoted to adjust the Rover height and angle with respect to the local surface, and to create a sort of walking ability, particularly useful in soft, non-cohesive soils like dunes. In addition, inclinometers and gyroscopes are used to enhance the motion control robustness. Finally, Sun sensors are utilised to determine the Rover’s absolute attitude on the Martian surface and the direction to Earth.

The camera system's images, combined with ground penetrating radar data collected while travelling, will allow scientists on-ground to define a suitable drilling location.

The Rover subsurface sampling device will then autonomously drill to the required depth (maximum 2 m) while investigating the borehole wall mineralogy, and collect a small sample. This sample will be delivered to the analytical laboratory in the heart of the vehicle. The laboratory hosts four different instruments and several support mechanisms. The sample will be crushed into a fine powder. By means of a dosing station the powder will then be presented to other instruments for performing a detailed chemistry, physical, and spectral analyses.

The scientific data will be compressed and transmitted back to Earth via a Mars orbiter relay satellite. The transmission between the Rover and the relay orbiter will be in the UHF band. The average data volume transmitted per sol will be ~100 Mbit.
