dc.description.abstract Achieving consistently high levels of productivity for surface exploration missions has been a challenge for Mars missions. While the rovers have made major discoveries and accomplished a large number of objectives, they often require a great deal of effort from the operations teams and achieving objectives can take longer than anticipated. This paper describes the early stages of a multi-year project to investigate solutions for enhancing surface mission productivity. A primary focus of this early stage is to conduct in-depth studies of Mars Science Laboratory science campaigns to gain a deeper understanding of the factors that impact productivity, and to use this understanding to identify potential changes to flight software and ground operations practices to increase productivity. We present the science campaigns we have selected along with a conceptual model of how surface missions achieve objectives that is used to guide the study. We also provide some early thoughts on the technologies, and their interactions, which we believe will play an important role in addressing surface mission productivity challenges. en_US
