Abstract
In this paper the most important constraints of the wind sensors for the Martian atmosphere are described, along with an overview of the past successful designs. Practically all the data available today about the Martian surface wind has been measured using hot film anemometry. A novel wind sensor element is described that will be equipping a REMS (remote environment monitoring system) instrument for the MSL rover by NASA. The device is based on four silicon chips coplanarly assembled, embedded ...
