Advanced Navigation for future Mars Rotorcraft

This task is developing an autonomous navigation system that would enable future Mars Rotorcraft to access any kind of Martian terrain. This includes visual-inertial odometry for self-localization in complex 3D environments such as along cliffs and inside craters, hazard detection and avoidance for autonomous safe landing, and global position referencing for precision remote sensing of science targets. This task is part of the Mars Science Helicopter strategic initiative.
