A Mars Ascent Vehicle (MAV) systems engineering study is underway to define the driving requirements, concept of operations, system engineering challenges, and surface support systems to enable the launch of a rock core sample to a specified delivery orbit for later retrieval and return to Earth. The proposed MAV would essentially be a small-scale launch(More)
There are many different atomic frequency standard technologies but only few meet the demanding performance, reliability, size, mass, and power constraints required for space operation. The Jet Propulsion Laboratory is developing a linear ion-trap-based mercury ion clock, referred to as DSAC (DeepSpace Atomic Clock) under NASA's Technology Demonstration(More)
