Abstract : As chartered by the Science Definition Team, the Mars 2020 mission addresses four primary objectives: A. Characterize the processes that formed and modified the geologic record within an astrobiologically relevant ancient environment, B. Perform astrobiologically relevant investigations to determine habitability, search for materials with biosignature presentation potential, and search for evidence of past life, C. Assemble a returnable cache of samples and D. Contribute to preparation for human exploration of Mars. The SuperCam instrument, selected for the Mars 2020 rover, as a suite of four instruments, provides nested and co-aligned remote investigations: Laser Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (LIBS), Raman spectroscopy and time-resolved fluorescence (TRF), visible and near-infrared spectroscopy (VISIR), and high resolution color imaging (RMI). SuperCam appeals broadly to the four Mars 2020 objectives.In detail, SuperCam will perform:1. Microscale mineral identification by combining LIBS elemental and VISIR mineralogical spectroscopies, especially targeting secondary minerals2. Determine the sedimental stratigraphy through color imaging and LIBS and VISIR spectroscopy3. Search for organics and bio-signatures with LIBS and Raman spectroscopy4. Quantify the volatile content of the rocks by LIBS spectroscopy to determine the degree of aquaeous alteration5. Characterize the texture of the rocks by color imaging to determine their alteration processes6. Characterize the rocks' coatings by LIBS spectroscopy7. Characterize the soil and its potential for biosignature preservation8. Monitor the odd-oxygen atmospheric chemistry.To meet these goals SuperCam will perform LIBS spectroscopy on 0.5 mm spot up to 7-meter distance, perform Raman and time-resolved fluoresence up to 12-m distance with a 0.8 mrad angular resolution, a 100 ns time gating in the 534-850 nm spectral range, acquire VISIR spectra in the range 0.4-0.85 μm with a resolution of 0.35 nm, and in the IR range over 1.3-2.6 μm, rich in mineral signatures, with a resolution of 20 nm, and provide RGB images with an angular resolution of 40 μrad over a FOV of 20 mrad.We will present the science performances of SuperCam and the forecasted operation plans.
