Karin Hauck created the event Mars MAVEN Webinar: Deep Dips: Designing a Mission Orbiter

NASA's Mars Atmosphere and Volatile Evolution (MAVEN) mission has been orbiting Mars since 2014, making periodic “deep dips” to sample the Mars upper atmosphere. Lockheed Martin designed the MAVEN spacecraft and manages mission operations. The spacecraft is based on the flight-proven designs of the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter and the Juno spacecraft, designed and built by Lockheed Martin, which has since based the design of NASA’s OSIRIS-Rex spacecraft on lessons learned from MAVEN. Join Guy Beutelschies, former Lockheed Martin Program Manager for MAVEN and current Vice President of Communications Systems to learn about the challenges engineers face in designing missions like MAVEN for success.
