Abstract : The objective of the Netlander mission was to land 4 small geophysical stations on the surface of Mars to study the deep interior, subsurface, surface and atmosphere of the planet. Included in the payload was a ground penetrating radar GPR designed to retrieve not only the distance but also the direction of the reflectors, thus providing a simplified 3D imaging of the subsurface. In this paper we report initial results obtained during the RANETA campaign on the Antarctic ice shelf. Data from two soundings of the ice-bed rock interface are analyzed, demonstrating the capability of the radar to disentangle echoes from different reflecting facets of the bed rock.
