In recent times, the demand for resilient space rovers has surged, which has been driven by the amplified exploration of celestial bodies such as the Moon and Mars. Recognising the limitations of direct human intervention in such environments, these rovers have gained a great deal of importance. Our proposal introduces a digital twin for space exploration rovers that seamlessly integrates intricate geometric, kinematic, and dynamic models, along with sensor and control systems. It faithfully emulates genuine real-world scenarios, providing an authentic testing ground for rover prototypes and the development of damage detection algorithms. Its flexibility in replicating diverse terrains, environmental conditions, and operational scenarios significantly expedites rover development. The digital twin serves as a valuable tool in the perfecting of damage detection systems, allowing engineers to efficiently craft diagnostic algorithms. This innovative approach not only conserves valuable resources but also ensures the robustness of space mission systems, thus enhancing the overall success and safety of planetary exploration endeavours.
