frame5_radIndian Space Research Organization (ISRO), Department of Space (DOS), Government of India, announces an opportunity (AO) to carry out scientific research using data from Mars Orbiter Mission (MOM). MOM is ISRO’s first interplanetary space probe dedicated for the Mars research.

This AO is targeted towards utilizing the data from five payloads of MOM, namely Mars Colour Camera (MCC), Thermal Infrared Imaging Spectrometer (TIS), Methane Sensor for Mars (MSM), Lyman Alpha Photometer (LAP) and Mars Exospheric Neutral Composition Analyser (MENCA). MOM was launched from Sriharikota, India using a Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV) rocket on 5th November 2013.  The science objectives include exploration of the surface of Mars and its atmosphere. This requires observations on geologic and atmospheric processes acting on Mars. Considering these requirements, the above five scientific payloads have been flown onboard MOM. [More at link]
