The High-Resolution Stereo Camera (HRSC) and the Wide-Angle Optical Scanner (WAOSS) are remote sensing instruments of the ARGUS platform to be flown onboard the Russian Mars 94/96 spacecraft. The main objectives of the HRSC experiment are to acquire stereo image data, to derive detailed digital terrain-models and ortho-images, to examine morphological features, geological processes and surface-atmosphere interactions. The camera will be operating in nine channels with different inclinations, different geometric resolution and different spectral bands. The highest geometric resolution of 10 m/pixel will be achieved at an altitude of 250 km at periapsis. WAOSS will also acquire stereo image data using a similar camera design. It consists of three panchromatic channels comprising two inclined stereo views with 80 m resolution at periapsis. The main interests in interpretation of WAOSS data are the examination of major atmosphere and large-scale surface phenomena.
