Three Dimensional Situational Awareness Sensor to Assist Descent and Landing of the Mars Lander Spacecraft, Phase I

Completed Technology Project

Project Introduction

Three Dimensional Situational Awareness Sensor to Assist Descent and Landing of the Mars Lander Spacecraft, Phase I
In order to address NASA's needs identified in the RFP, TetraVue proposes the use of a unique, non GPS and non-observer position dependent 3D sensor system to achieve both high lateral and depth resolution during the landing phase of the EDL. The system uses a nanosecond-class laser strobe to illuminate the scene and capture the 3D data in a single shot and is thus insensitive to motion of the observe or the scene. More »
