Abstract

The Dust characterization, Risk assessment and Environment Analyser on the Martian Surface (DREAMS) package is an integrated multi-sensor scientific payload proposed to be accommodated on the ExoMars 2016 Entry Descent and Landing Demonstrator Module (EDM). It is dedicated to characterizing fundamental aspects of Mars’climate, geology and boundary layer dynamics at the EDM landing site. The DREAMS package is fully autonomous, providing both power and data handling resources through a Common Electronics Unit (CEU) and a battery. The DREAMS proposal gathers a wide consortium of institutions led by Italy, reflecting the current involvement of European countries in the ExoMars program.
