For the past two decades, Mars, the closest planet to the Earth in the solar system, has been investigated for its climate, thermal state, and resources. Space landers are vessels that assist in the landing of the rover that is used to investigate Mars. The design, modelling, soft landing, planet atmosphere analysis, and prototype of a 2-in-1 lander and rover used to explore Mars were all utilized in this project. Ion thrusters which are our radio frequency (RIT) to produce thrust are used for orbital insertion. Because Mars has an atmosphere and gravity, we can use RC motors as a hovering mechanism to study the planet’s environment. CATIA V5 is used to design the 2-in-1 lander rover, Ion thruster, and hovering system, while ANSYS is used to analyse the static, thermal, and flow results of the model. From this analysis, we can find whether the designed model can sustain mars’ atmospheric condition and thermal condition. MATLAB is being used to simulate a soft landing and space exploration. Many sensors are utilized to investigate Mars and determine weather and temperature conditions. The whole operating and performance of the two-in-one lander and rover is estimated in this project.
