Rover “Phileas”

A mission requirements document couldn't be shorter.
The PolAres Rover „Phileas“ shall:
  • Function in desert and arctic environment until –80°C (high robustness),
  • Function 80 days without interruption and be able to cover a distance up to 80 km (long durability & range of exploration)
  • and be usable in regions up to the 80° latitude (north / south) (high versatility).
