Driven by winds that can reach more than 300 km/h, the Tumbleweed rovers can cover more than 50% of the Martian north pole in less than three weeks.
Using off-the-shelf components and mass-producible technologies, we can greatly reduce costs compared to traditional Mars rovers.
Through implementing the CubeSat method, any company or research institution can adapt their sensors to the standards required for our payloads.
By releasing more than 100 robust Tumbleweed rovers over the Martian north pole, the risk of complete mission failure on impact is reduced drastically.
