ExoMars is a joint mission led by the European Space Agency and Roscosmos. This astrobiology mission was designed to hunt for signs of geologic and biological activity on Mars, and consists of the Trace Gas Orbiter plus Schiaparelli, an entry, descent and landing demonstrator module.
The scientific payload on Schiaparelli includes the AMELIA (Atmospheric Mars Entry and Landing Investigations and Analysis) experiment.
The Principal Investigator (PI) for AMELIA is Francesca Ferri from the Università degli Studi di Padova in Italy.
AMELIA is an experiment to study some of the major properties of the Martian atmosphere, such as density, pressure and temperature, from an altitude of about 130 km all the way down to the surface. It will exploit the engineering measurements performed by Schiaparelli's sensors to conduct scientific investigations of Mars' atmosphere and surface.

The ExoMars entry, descent and landing offers a rare opportunity to perform in situ investigations of the Martian environment over a wide altitude range.
