-To paraphrase the MARS home page, MARS hosts a number of WGs that serve as MARS' technology incubators. ​ These WGs are focused on and responsible for advancing a specific technology area. This may include the preparation of and review of responses from RFIs and the preparation of RFPs.  There are 5 __//​active//​__ working groups at this time: +MARS hosts a number of WGs that serve as MARS' technology incubators. ​ These WGs are focused on and responsible for advancing a specific technology area.
