Log-in and hear how Dr. Blake Crowther and the team of Synopsys engineers designed zoom lenses for the interplanetary mission to deliver high resolution color and 3-D views of Mars.

Dr. Crowther will discuss “An Inside Look at Optical Design with Mastcam-Z as an Example” Synopsys was a key partner in developing the Mastcam-Z and CacheCam imaging systems on Perseverance. The Mastcam-Z, which functions as the rover’s mast-mounted scientific “eyes,” is the first zoom lens system in deep space and is capable of generating stereoscopic images and resolving features as small as 3cm from a distance of 100m. Dr. Crowther was particularly involved in developing this lens systems which had to function in the harsh Martian environment as well as survive the journey from Earth and the Mars landing Presentation starts at 7:00 p.m. and is preceded by virtual networking at 6:30.
