MASCOT (‘Mobile Asteroid Surface Scout’) is a 10 kg mobile surface science package on board JAXA’s Hayabusa2 sample return mission, currently on its way to the near-Earth asteroid (162173) Ryugu. The mission was launched in December 2014 from Tanegashima Space Center, Japan. The Hayabusa2 spacecraft will reach the target asteroid in summer 2018. Hayabusa2 will return its samples to Earth in December 2020. After arrival at the target asteroid ‘Ryugu’ a detailed mapping phase will be performed and the landing site of MASCOT will be selected. The deployment of MASCOT to the asteroids surface is planned for the beginning of October 2018. MASCOT has been developed by the German Aerospace Center (DLR) in cooperation with the Centre National d’Etudes Spatiales (CNES). The main objective of MASCOT is to perform in-situ investigations of the asteroid surface and to support the sampling site selection for the mother spacecraft. Mascot is equipped with four scientific instruments a wide angle camera, a hyperspectral infrared microscope, a radiometer and a magnetometer. The camera (MasCam) provides ground truth for the orbital measurements of the Hayabusa2 orbiter instruments and the in-situ MASCOT sensor suite as well as geological context of the samples. The radiometer (MARA) determines the surface brightness temperature, the thermal inertia of the surface material and the spectral slope in infrared. The radiometer field of view is correlated with the wide angle camera field of view. The magnetometer (MasMAG) observes the magnetic field profile during descent and bouncing and determines any global and local magnetization of the asteroid.
