Materion Technology, Expertise Take Flight on NASA’s Mars Mission
Materion Corporation (NYSE:MTRN) has outfitted NASA’s Perseverance rover with a stellar array of advanced technologies from Materion’s unique product portfolio, marking the Company’s third rover
mission to Mars.
Materion has provided optical filters for every NASA rover mission to the red planet, and the Company’s bandpass filters are a key component of the rover’s Mastcam-Z camera system. Its
high-performance optical filters are also part of the weather station located on the boom of the rover. The Mars Environmental Dynamics Analyzer (MEDA) instrument will characterize the dust sizes
and shapes and provide daily weather reporting and information on the radiation and wind patterns on Mars.
