Whitepaper #361 submitted to the Planetary Science and Astrobiology Decadal Survey 2023-2032. Topics: Mars; other: Rotorcraft science; technology development
This white paper describes two conceptual rotorcraft, based on the design of Ingenuity on Mars 2020. These vehicles enable a wide range of innovative science investigations at Mars. We present three example mission concepts that illustrate this potential. We recommend a science rotorcraft mission to Mars in the next decade.
