The HOPE mission is designed to understand the dynamics in the Martian atmosphere on a global scale.  The spacecraft has on board three scientific instruments. 1 – Emirates high performance digital camera to capture high resolution images. 2 – Emirates Mars Infrared Spectrometer, that measures global distribution of dust, ice cloud and water vapour in the Martian lower atmosphere. 3 – Emirates Mars Ultraviolet Spectrometer that measures oxygen and carbon monoxide in the thermosphere.
