Boeing, Lockheed Martin among companies chosen to design the next Mars orbiter concepts

Boeing, Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman, Orbital ATK, and Space Systems/Loral were chosen for four-month studies that will explore how a Mars orbiter could communicate, take images and carry out other essential operations on the Red Planet. Every concept will include solar electric propulsion, since it is flexible and feasible using the United States’ current technology capabilities. The proposed orbiter will support the Journey to Mars in a future mission.
