The Search & Rescue (SAR) team embark on a rescue mission to save the life of the injured crew member:
In this challenge you will:
Work with or join the SAR team and embark on a MEVA on surface of Mars with support from Remote Mission Support (RMS), testing current exponential technologies, satellite images, GPS, maps, drones and rovers to locate the injury site (IS).
Learn how to conduct the following protocols
i) SAR EVA and terrain scouting to locate the IS
ii) Triage and Assessment of injured astronaut at IS
iii) Evacuation from IS back to Basecamp
Engage and communicate with Remote Mission Support team to support crew teams to ensure success of the medical rescue
Prepare to join the Martian crews and embark on their risky missions at Mariner Valley on Mars. Get ready to deployed MEVA protocol on Mars surface.
