Northrop Grumman Engineering & Science Student Design Showcase


While rovers have been used by various agencies to explore Mars, their travel is limited by terrain obstacles, which may prevent mission completion.

Integrating the technology for both transportation modes into one rover allows for efficiency and advancements in technological and planetary research.
