ICE-DOME PROSPECTOR
 
Autonomous Rover designed to survey potential mid-latitude sites that host sub-surface ice-domes suitable for mined water-extraction. Equipped with Ground Penetration Radar to map ice-bearing underground strata in detail. Various probes, drills, and a laser mass-spectrometer, can be deployed to assay the water content of promising sites. Rovers would require periodic maintenance but could independently explore large expanses of terrain without otherwise exposing personnel to accumulating radiation.
