Abstract

Mastcam-Z is a high-heritage imaging system aboard NASA's Mars 2020 Perseverance rover that is based on the successful Mastcam investigation on the Mars Science Laboratory (MSL) Curiosity rover. It has all the capabilities of MSL Mastcam, and is augmented by a 4:1 zoom capability that will significantly enhance its stereo imaging performance for science, rover navigation, and in situ instrument and tool placement support. The Mastcam-Z camera heads are a matched pair of zoomable, focusable charge-coupled device (CCD) cameras that collect broad-band Red/green/blue (RGB) or narrow-band visible/near-infrared (VNIR; ~400-1000 nm) multispectral color data as well as direct solar images using neutral density filters. Each camera has a selectable field of view ranging from ~7.7° to ~31.9° diagonally, imaging at pixel scales from 67 to 283 µrad/pix (resolving features ~0.7 mm in size in the near field and ~3.3 cm in size at 100 m) from its position ~2 m above the surface on the Perseverance Remote Sensing Mast (RSM).
