Well, we're not going to Mars ourselves, but DigitalFish may have the opportunity to help support NASA operations there.

This morning NASA announced they selected DigitalFish's STTR proposal, submitted in collaboration with researchers at Carnegie Mellon University, to apply OpenSubdiv in representing the Martian terrain for planetary-rover mission and science planners.

Beyond its application in space, we believe our work in subdivision-surface terrain representation under this project will have Earth-bound applications for mobile mapping by field scientists and engineers, military operations planning and C4I mobile systems, naval and commercial-marine bathymetry mapping, and terrain rendering for film and games.

NASA's official announcement tells more about the highly competitive federal SBIR/STTR R&D programs.
