Natural influences on Mars navigation systems
The functionality of possible future satellite navigation solutions on Mars will depend on a wide spectrum of natural influences. One of the most important influences is the planet’s ionosphere and the environment in the upper parts of the martian atmosphere. The satellite navigation system on Mars would be one of the most important systems used in deep research of this planet because it could help to dramatically reduce the costs of any other probe (or rover).
The author’s paper published in Posterus magazine focuses on and explains these natural influences on the functionality of such a system on Mars. More information and published paper can be found below:
