DECA 'looking forward' to set foot on Mars
For the first time since that start of the Space Activities in OIP Sensor Systems, hardware fully developed by OIP
will set ‘foot’ on a non-terrestrial surface, i.e. the surface of Mars!
So far, approximately 10 ton of terrestrial hardware is ‘resting’ on Mars. From October 2016 onwards 600kg will be added by the Schiaparelli,
Exomars’ Entry, Descent & Landing Demonstration Module, from which 616g were prepared in the OIP cleanrooms.
