The rover vehicle resulting from this effort will be used to test strategies and systems necessary to establish operational protocols for the surface exploration of Mars. It will be used to test procedures that may be applied to an overall science traverse philosophy. It is not an attempt to pick the optimal design for a rover vehicle. It is an attempt to select a very good baseline vehicle, to serve as a lab for establishment of operational constraints and testing of existing assumptions.
