The SuperCam on the Perseverance rover examines rocks and soils with a camera, laser and spectrometers to seek organic compounds that could be related to past life on Mars. It can identify the chemical and mineral makeup of targets as small as a pencil point from a distance of more than 20 feet (7 meters).
The SUPERCAM is equipped with M2.5 to M4 Tangless CoilThread inserts.
