Conclusion

The MarsCAT Mission is a proposed CubeSat mission to Mars, consisting of several 6U CubeSats equipped with on-board electric propulsion. The mission science goals are aimed at increasing understanding of the ionosphere of Mars, its structure and its dynamics. The mission engineering goals are to demonstrate that it is possible to operate CubeSats in Mars orbit.
