dc.description.abstract In this paper we provide an independent modeling and dynamic analysis of the MARSIS Antenna segmented booms deployed on the Mars Express Spacecraft. The Mars Express Mission is a joint NASA/ESA Cooperative project. The Mars Express Spacecraft being built by ESA will be launched in June 2003 and arrive at Mars in December 2003 to begin a four year study of the planet's atmosphere, surface, and subsurface. The Mars Advanced Radar for Subsurface and Ionospheric Mapping (MARSIS), provided by NASA and managed by JPL, is a key instrument in the search for water on Mars. Our objective was to determine the antenna's dynamic interaction with the spacecraft bus (or central rigid body). en_US
