This paper describes several Jet Propulsion Laboratory research efforts being conducted to support Mars sample return in the coming decade. After describing the 2003/05 mission scenario, we provide an overview of new technologies emerging from three complementary research efforts: Long Range Science Rover, Sample Return Rover, and FIDO Rover. The results show improvements in planning, navigation, estimation, sensing, and operations for small rovers operating in Mars-like environments
