Precision Landing For Mars 2020 At Jezero

As its July 2020 launch date approaches, more information is coming to light about NASA’s sophisticated new rover headed for Mars. Expect to see hi-res colour video of the entry, descent and landing (EDL) sequence from multiple viewpoints, including the sky crane maneuver and touch down.
There’s also a new super-precise landing navigation system which can steer the rover away from dangerous obstacles during descent. Terrain-relative navigation (TRN) allows for a highly targeted landing in Jezero crater – a rugged, yet scientifically valuable site.
