Rover "Phileas"

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).
Those three requirement profiles demand a sophisticated thermal management, solid components with long endurance and a highly efficient energy system.

Mission profile

The primary mission profile is the transfer, application and utilisation of scientific payloads, both during single robotic missions and in cooperation with analogue astronauts as human component.
