Mars Perseverance Software

Steve Scandore- Available in 31 days, 21 hours and 57 minutes

After several years in development, the Perseverance rover launched from Cape Canaveral Florida on July 30, 2020 on its 300 million mile and 203 day journey to the surface of Mars. The spacecraft successfully performed a precision landing at the Jezero crater landing site on February 18, 2021 beginning its two year primary mission and ensuring the continued flow of interplanetary science from the surface of Mars. The command, control and communication of the spacecraft is carried out by the onboard flight software (FSW) operating on the rover computer element (RCE) avionics. This talk will discuss Mars exploration objectives and provide a background of the FSW used on these missions.
