The mission started with a September 2009 launch followed by a 10 month voyage to Mars. The car-sized rover utilized a set of sophisticated scientific instruments to study the surface and atmospheric properties of Mars including mineral and organic composition.

VSC is proud of their contribution to the national space program, developing a High Power Amplifier (HPA) and its Attendant High Voltage Power Supply (HVPS).
