EVA Report – November 3rd

Crew 285 EVA Report 03-11-2023
EVA # 3
Author: Andrea de la Torre
Purpose of EVA: Continue the mapping of Candor Chasma with the drone and make a 2D path to follow with the QFIELD app.
Start time: 9:00 am
End time: 11:45 am
Our mission was focused on capturing GPS coordinates throughout the journey to create a digital route that our colleagues can follow with a mobile app, leveraging the fact that one of our EVA team members was already familiar with the location. Additionally, we deployed an automated drone flight over the Candor Chasma canyon to generate an orthomosaic, a 3D model, and a DMS chart for analyzing the final exploration area for the next EVA team. Furthermore, we collected a soil sample to further our construction material project, using a different type of soil than in previous EVAs.
Destination: Candor Chasma
Coordinates (use UTM WGS 84): (520500,4251000)

Road(s) and routes per MDRS Map: N Cow Dung Rd and Galileo Road.
Mode of travel: driving from the HAB north through Cow Dung Rd, turning into Galileo Road. We parked 300 meters before Compass Rock because the SOC of Perseverance was at 65% and we walked to the entrance of the canyon of Candor Chasma.
