ISRO's Mars Orbiter and NASA's MAVEN may cruise to Mars together

http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/home/science/Isros-Orbiter-Nasas-Maven-may-cruise-together-to-Mars/articleshow/24507096.cms

I'm wondering if perhaps both probes might be able to take measurements while flying together? There may be certain phenomena they can jointly verify due to their mutual proximity while in transit.

This discussion is WAY too early (and given that this is their maiden Mars mission - probably way too morbid: atleast I'm 95% sure that ISRO will say so), but I'm just putting this up here for future reference.


What are the End-of Scientific-Mission plans? Notwithstanding my own reply to the linked post, Would the relatively large eccentricity (that 80,000 km apo-ares, which - IIRC took some flak) - offer any significant improvement in Earth-Mars data-rates, if the orbiter joins the relay team? Especially since this is being touted as a technology demonstration mission...

No data relay is possible for MOM unless it is secretly carrying the appropriate transponder.

There really needs to be some sort of international convention so that Mars orbiters can operate together to form a network.

Maybe because it's mostly an engineering test flight they didn't look into it.

according to ISRO's facebook page:
The second ship SCI Nalanda also left Fiji islands for its designated position in the Pacific Ocean at around 12:00 UT on October 26, 2013, intended to track the upper stages of the PSLV C25 Launch of Mars Orbiter Mission.

ISRO will lose 'sight' of Mars Orbiter before ships pick up signals

Officials at the Mission Control Centre at SDSC let on that the 'quiet' period will be between 15-20 minutes, "We will not be able to see the pitch, yaw, roll, corrections that the ships is making for that time. We will extrapolate its trajectory and hope that the on-board computer makes the corrections as programmed," said the official. The data will be logged and downloaded to ISRO's servers as soon as the ship's receivers pick up the telemetry signals from the ship.
