dc.description.abstract At different time periods in the future, Mars missions will overlap and previous studies indicate that during such periods existing deep space communication infrastructure will not be able to handle all Mars communication needs. A plausible solution is to perform optimal resource allocation for the Mars relay communication network; a network consisting of multiple surface units and orbiters on Mars and the Deep Space Stations. Unlike direct-to-earth, a relay communication, either in real-time or store-and-forward, can increase network science data return, reduce surface unit's direct-to-earth communication demands, and enable communication even when the surface unit is not facing Earth. It is the objective of this paper to take advantage of the relay operation to efficiently plan and schedule the network communications. en_US
