MARS SURFACE ATV

The backbone of the vehicle is a lightweight articulated suspension frame supported from rigid boom axles. Shock absorbing springs with internal gas-filled dampers are tempeered and adjusted to take account of the much lighter gravity on Mars. A tubular cage is centrally sited to provide protection for the drive motors well above any potential ground level obstructions.
