Mars 2013Between 01 – 28. February 2013, the Austrian Space Forum – in partnership with the Ibn Battuta Center in Marrakesh – conducted an integrated Mars analog field simulation in the northern Sahara near Erfoud, Morocco in the framework of the PolAres research programme. Directed by a Mission Support Center in Austria, a small field crew conducted experiments preparing for future human Mars missions mainly in the fields of engineering, planetary surface operations, astrobiology, geophysics/geology, life sciences and other.

|A student experiment, devised at the University of Innsbruck during the summer 2012 “Unicamp”. One solar panel will be swept by a brush once a day, whereas the other will accumulate a fine layer of dust.
|Distance measurement “Yellow Box”
|Using a high frequency signal emited by a base station, the signal travel time is measured to calculate the distance to the receiver. This could be used for a triangulation method to determine the location of a field unit.
|OPS Box “White”
|The classical base station for receiving the telemetry of the Aouda spacesuits has been expanded by an ergonomic design variant.
