The mission will be executed analogue to a real space mission to Mars, except for the in-flight phases, solely concentrating on surface operations.

There will be two teams, one comprised of the 6 analogue astronauts that will be placed in the Martian habitat at Rzepiennik Biskupi in the Polish mountains, where they will perform the experiments and measurements in and around the Habitat and Exploration Site, log their activities and report everything to the Mission Support Center (MSC).



The second team will be the Mission Support Team located in the offices of ABM Space in Torun, Poland, who will support, supervise and analyse the astronauts' activities.

The 6 astronauts will be in full isolation for the entire mission duration. The only line of communication will be with MSC via a time delayed line. The time delay will be between 10 and 20 minutes, and simulates the long distance between Earth and Mars and the related communication delay.

The astronauts will be provided with analogue space suits for EVA activities. They will incorporate a basic real-time communication system suit-to-suit and suit-to-habitat. 

The mission duration will be aimed at two weeks starting from late July 2017, with an option to abridge it to a minimum of one week. This duration is necessary in order to monitor effects of the isolation on the behaviour of the astronauts and the efficiency of their work while conducting the experiments.
