To check the performance of the RDA on soil with geological characteristics similar to those measured directly on Mars during previous NASA missions (Viking, Pathfinder, Spirit, Opportunity, Curiosity).

To check the RDA’s electromagnetic compatibility with the Descent Module structure for the 2020 mission and, in particular, to check for any electromagnetic interference between the radar and the Descent Module legs. A Descent Module simulator was built for this test, with the same size and shape as the real module.
