  • The Mars Descent Imager, or MARDI, experiment on the Mars Polar Lander (MPL) consists of a camera characterized by small physical size and mass (∼6×6×12 cm, including baffle; <500 gm), low power requirements (<2.5 W, including power supply losses), and high science performance (1000×1000 pixel, low noise). The intent of the investigation is to acquire nested images over a range of resolutions, from 8 m/pixel to better than 1 cm/pixel, during the roughly 2 min it takes the MPL to descend from 8… CONTINUE READING
