Comrod is on its way to Mars…
After a successful launch on 30th July, the Mars 2020 mission is underway.
Underneath the Perseverance rover is a unique piece of technology from Norway — a Comrod antenna. This forms part of the RIMFAX ground penetrating radar, developed by the Norwegian Defence Research Establishment (FFI) together with Norwegian industry.
RIMFAX provides centimeter scale resolution of the geologic structure, allowing scientists to search for evidence of past life deep underneath the Mars surface. After the rover touches down in February 2021, the Comrod antenna will be hard at work helping NASA discover the secrets of the red planet.
