The second Mars mission by ISRO will be called Mars Orbiter Mission-2 (MOM-2), also known as Mangalyaan-2. According to a Physical Research Laboratory report, the spacecraft will be equipped with four payloads which will study the atmosphere, environment and the interplanetary dust of the red planet.

The MODEX Mangalyaan-2 mission payload is designed to unravel the mysteries of high-altitude regions of Mars in terms of their abundance, spread, and movement of substances. The RO instruments will measure the electron density profiles and the atmosphere on Mars. The EIS which is now under development will aim to study solar energy particles and supra-thermal solar wind particles. To get more in-depth information about the Mars plasma environment, the LPEX instrument will be used to study electron number density, electron temperature, and electric field waves. The instrument will also consist of a Langmuir probe (LP) and two electric field (EF) sensors for effective study.
