Use bullet points to include details such as: wavelengths covered, resolution of images, sensitivity and applications of instrument Challenges to development, e.g. have no clean room available, calibration required References in the literature, and Work that would be good to get from the Ames community (e.g. software development) Funding / Timeline Technology / Application NASA Ames Instrumentation Workshop Readiness Readiness level: level: Demonstrated/Existing Demonstrated/Existing In In Development/Mature Development/Mature Planned Planned (Future) (Future) Images go here Name/division/phone/email of Point of Contact(s) e.g. POC: James Bond, Code SSX email: [email protected] phone: +44 007 007 007 Ground Penetrating Radar for Water Detection on Mars (GPRWDM) NASA Ames Instrumentation Workshop Readiness Readiness level: level: Demonstrated/Existing Demonstrated/Existing In

In Development/Mature Development/Mature Planned Planned (Future) (Future) May 13, 2010 2006 Idea conception 2007 Proposed to MIDP Feb 2008 First prototype built Planning to test the instrument in the field at DESERT RATS in 2011 when it Will be integrated on the FIDO rover and interfaced with software for the first time POC Requirement. A requirement exists to detect the presence of water beneath the surface of Mars on a Rover. We have built a prototype Ground Penetrating Radar to achieve this task and we hope to have the instrument on the MAX-C Rover, to be launched in 2018 to Mars. The current instrument has been in development for 2 years, and has the following characteristics: operates at 2GHz Requires little user intervention Has a battery life of 2 hours Can detect water rich layers down to 12m. Technical Readiness. We asses this instrument to be at Techincal Readiness Level 3 because the instrument prototype has been built and is operating. Ames Resources Used. We had the instrument manufactured in the tool shop at N245 and conducted calibration in the cool room in building N244. Challenges to development. We have tried without success to find a developer to design and build a user inteface to control the GPRWDM instrument. We are still actively looking for support in this area. If we were able to find scientists at Ames interested in water on Mars to help during field testing next year then this will allow the instrument to reach higher readiness, perhaps even TRL 4. References in the literature. Two papers have been pulished on this instrument: Bond et al., 2009, GPRWDM Instrument for the MAX-C Rover Mars 5, 195 Bond et al., 2010, Ground Penetrating Radar in White Sands Dune Environment Icarus 205, 1976.

level: Demonstrated/Existing Demonstrated/Existing In In Development/Mature Development/Mature Planned Planned (Future) (Future) May 13, 2010 Application: Focal planes for mid-IR (5 to 28 microns) cameras and Technology / Application spectrometers for low-background space-based applications, and for near-ir and far-ir imagers. Customer: JDEM, MIRI for JWST, WISE, EXES, possibilities of ASPIRE,SPICA. Technology: 1kx1k and 2kx2k planar hybrid (bump-bonded) sensor chip assemblies with 25 micron pixel pitch for deep-cryo operation at low background flux. ARC role/activities/products: In-house characterization of noise and responsivity, combined with radiation testing at the UCD cyclotron. Screening Of parts, optimization of clocking, iteration with manufacturer to improve future lots. Images go here Technical Challenges: Very low background photon flux at thermal wavelengths, noise measurements in the electrons range, characterize peculiarities In read-out functionality, nonlinear effects, latencies and time constants. Level of success: Highly successful, demonstrated space flight Test dewar at the UC Davis Cyclotron for Radiation testing for space flight. Testing of silicon detectors since 1980s. Radiation testing since 1989. Delivery of flight parts to Spitzer 1999 Tests for MIRI and Wise 2008-9 Currently testing detectors for JDEM POC Funding / Timeline requirements for array performance POC: Robert McMurray, Code RE email: [email protected] phone: (650) 604-3179
