If we are going to Mars then we need the new micro satellites orbiting and mapping mars as well as a GPS system. We will need and want one for sure for manned exploration as well, and before we get to mars it sure would help a lot,and with additional programming Ideals I have been working on for self guidance of the rovers to maximize their time and efforts, which could be used before the micro satellites are in place.
With the low gravity of mars and micro satellites you can have a lower orbit allowing for better mapping and lower power level consumption. If I were NASA or who ever plans on going to Mars I would be working on this Micro Satellite GPS & Mapping System ASAP!!!!!!! We can Start with the Moon also to work out the system.
