The main objective of this first Indian mission to Mars is to develop the technologies required for design, planning, management and operations of an interplanetary mission, comprising the following major tasks:

  • Orbit maneuvers to transfer the probe from Earth-centered orbit to heliocentric trajectory and finally capture into Martian orbit.
  • Development of force models and algorithms for orbit and attitude computations and analyses.
  • Navigation in all phases.
  • Maintain the probe in all phases of the mission meeting power, communications, thermal and payload operation requirements.
  • Incorporate autonomous features to handle contingency situations.
