This paper describes recent efforts of the Mars Technology Program (MTP) to develop, integrate, and validate new rover technologies for upcoming missions. Missions planned after the current Mars Exploration Rovers require increased autonomy in several usage scenarios: long traverse, instrument placement, sampling, and onboard science data processing. To ensure improvements over current systems, MTP is funding component technology development toward these ends, as well as integration effortsdoi:10.1109/aero.2005.1559388 fatcat:zitbjh5kvrhtjosvicvy6eazdm
