Mars Entry Descent and Landing Instrumentation 2 (MEDLI2)

Completed Technology Project

Project Introduction

MEDLI2 will reduce uncertainty in aeroshell TPS response with the potential to reduce TPS mass by up to 130 kg for a Mars 2020 class mission. MEDLI2 will reduce uncertainty in supersonic aerodynamic predictions with the potential to reduce the landing footprint size by 30%. MEDLI2 fills critical EDL knowledge gaps which represent a technology advancement in EDL. MEDLI2 advances instrumentation development essential for EDL analysis.
