The ExoMars Rover Solar Array Assembly
This paper describes the ExoMars Rover Solar Array Assembly (SAA), a unique equipment, different from anything developed before in Europe. The SAA is part of the Rover which will be launched as part of the European Space Agency's ExoMars Mission under subcontract to the mission prime Thales Alenia Space. Airbus UK has the responsibility of the vehicle, Leonardo of the solar Array including the electrical part, while Sener is responsible for the mechanism part. The ExoMars Rover and Surface Platform, respectively named Rosalind Franklin and Kazachok, planned for launch in 2020 is a large international cooperation between the European Space Agency and Roscosmos with a contribution from NASA. All potential critical requirements have been identified and covered by a specific qualification testing. The biggest challenge in terms of development and qualification efforts is related to surviving Mars planet environment (i.e. dust and wind) and the system mechanical and electrical constraints.
