Abstract

This paper focuses on the Mars Exploration Rover (MER) mission's management decision to work on Mars time and the implications of that decision on the tactical surface operations process as personnel planned activities and created a new command load for work on each Martian sol. The paper also looks at tools that supported the complexities of Mars time operations, and makes some comparisons between Earth and Mars time scheduling.
