Abstract : A full polarimetric antenna system on board the ExoMars rover is part of the Experiment "Water Ice and Subsurface Deposit Observations on Mars" (WISDOM). The WISDOM-Experiment is a Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) selected to be part of the Pasteur payload aboard the rover of the ExoMars mission. The Pasteur Panoramic Instruments (wide angle camera PANCAM, infrared spectrometer MIMA and WISDOM) will perform large-scale scientific investigations at the sites the Rover will visit. Among these instruments, WISDOM is the only that can provide a view of the subsurface structure prior to drilling. WISDOM has been designed to characterize the shallow subsurface structure of Mars. WISDOM will for the first time give access to the geologic structure, electromagnetic nature, and, possibly, hydrological state of the shallow subsurface by retrieving the layering and properties of the buried reflectors
