Mars Astronaut Research Station – (M.A.R.S)

Mars Astronaut Research Station (M.A.R.S) is research stations proposed and designed to simulate the physical and psychological environment of a Martian exploration mission. These simulation also studies about the interaction of robot and artificial intelligence along with human. The crew members will study the equipment and techniques conducting various research such as greenhouse cultivation, isolation behavior helping the future space colony in terraforming any other celestial body.

The M.A.R.S is the first analogue simulation in the world that can withstand up to 30 crew members and simulates Lava tube colonization. The Analogue station also consists of observation bay for astronomy studies and a Ground Station. The habitation module functions as a test bed for human Mars exploration and provides opportunity for young researchers from any countries.

Remote Mission Support team will provide be located far from the habitation module and will provide

  • Crew Management
  • Safety and Security Management
  • Logistics and Continuity of Operations Management
  • Information Systems Management
  • Strategic Planning and Innovation
  • Quality Assurance and Standards
  • Experimental procedures and Data system management
  • Crew Rescue Activities

The Terranaut Crew will live in the Global Mars Analogue Station and will perform

  • Extravehicular Activity (EVA)
  • Intravehicular Activity (IVA)
  • Navigation Support
  • Robotics analysis and simulation
  • Configuring Prototypes
  • Sampling and testing of Materials
  • Scientific Experiments
  • Deck Offloadings

M.A.R.S will be designed to work on two modes of operation 1. long duration flight and 2. Colony habitation mode
