199. SAM Thermo-Electric Cooler Test Setup

The SAM “Sample Analysis at Mars” instrument suite is being developed at the Goddard Space Flight Center for flight on the next Mars Rover “Mars Science Laboratory”. Battel Engineering has the contract to develop the analog electronics package for SAM in a way analogous to the TEGA development effort performed for the University of Texas, Dallas. The photo shown is the test setup for verifying Thermo-Electric Cooler (TEC) drive options.
