Mars Surveyor 2001 Rover


Telecommunications Description

Telecommunications will be via UHF relays through the Mars Surveyor 2001 Orbiter and possibly the Mars Global Surveyor. Commanding relay links will be at 2 kbps. Uplink rates available will be 8 and 128 kbps. At a nominal two orbiter passes over the lander per martian day (sol), 50 Mbits/sol can be transmitted, 40 from the rover and 10 from the lander.

Telemetry Path
