Mars2020 parachute and backshell crashsite3D Model
On Sol 414 (Flight 26) the Ingenuity Mars helicopter set out to photograph the crash site of the parachute and backshell that guided it and the rover safely through the atmosphere. The flight was requested by engineers from the Mars Sample Return program to investigate how the hardware fared through its important role in the entry sequence.

This 3D model was reconstructed in Metashape from 190 images from the helicopters’ nadir pointing navigation camera and 10 color images from its RTE (Return to Earth) camera. The mesh was touched up in Blender around the parachute area where no geometry data could be reconstructed.
The model was georeferenced to Landmarks identified in the HiRISE map. The scene measures 82m * 57m.
