Success Story: NASA JPLs Mars 2020 Helicopter

The Mars 2020 Helicopter thermal design is driven by minimizing survival heater energy while meeting allowable temperatures in a variable thermal environment. LoadPath’s Veritrek software was used to study the effect of the major thermal design drivers and provided significant savings.

“It would have taken over 4 months to obtain the same level of information that Veritrek provided in 10 days” – NASA JPL, TFAS 2018
