Pictured here is the DREAMS flight model along with its mechanical ground segment equipment, prior to integration with the ExoMars Schiaparelli module.

The DREAMS (Dust Characterisation, Risk Assessment, and Environment Analyser on the Martian Surface) package consists of a suite of sensors to measure the local wind speed and direction (MetWind), humidity (DREAMS-H), pressure (DREAMS-P), surface temperature (MarsTem), the transparency of the atmosphere (Solar Irradiance Sensor, SIS), and atmospheric electric fields (Atmospheric Radiation and Electricity Sensor; MicroARES) at Mars.
