The scientific objectives of the 2020 ExoMars rover mission are to search for traces of past or present life and to characterise the near-sub surface. Both objectives require study of the rock/regolith materials in terms of structure, textures, mineralogy, and elemental and organic composition. The 2020 ExoMars rover payload consists of a suite of complementary instruments designed to reach These objectives. CLUPI, the high-performance colour close up imager, on board the 2020 ExoMars Rover plays an important role in attaining the mission objectives: it is the equivalent of the hand lens that no geologist is without when undertaking field work. CLUPI is a powerful, highly integrated miniaturized (<900g) low-power robust imaging system, able to sustain very low temperatures (–120°C). CLUPI has a working distance from 11.5cm to infinite providing outstanding pictures with a color detector of 2652x1768x3. At 11.5cm, the spatial resolution is 8 micrometer/pixel in color. The optical-mechanical interface is a smart assembly that can sustain a wide temperature range. The concept benefits from wellproven heritage: Proba, Rosetta, MarsExpress and Smart-1 missions…
