Ingenuity Helicopter Controlled by Qualcomm Chip Makes Historic 39-Second Flight on Mars

By Chris Jennewein

The four-pound Ingenuity helicopter controlled by a Qualcomm smartphone chip made the first flight on another planet Monday, climbing to 10 feet above Mars and hovering for 30 seconds before landing.

The solar-powered helicopter took off at 12:34 a.m. Pacific time and logged a total of 39.1 seconds of flight in the thin, cold Martian atmosphere. The successful flight was confirmed when data and images were received approximately three hours later.

Reducing Our Environmental Impact


Using electricity more efficiently helps us minimize our carbon footprint while avoiding millions of dollars in costs. Energy-efficient lighting, heating and cooling systems, data centers, and information technology (IT) equipment all help lighten our load. We power our facilities with modest amounts of renewable energy. When feasible, we build new buildings according to the U.S. Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) methodology.

Protecting the Health and Safety of our Employees and Communities


Our employees make Qualcomm’s success possible and their health and safety is our top priority. From the onset of the COVID-19 crisis, our Emergency Operations Team (EOT) implemented a comprehensive response plan covering items such as: hygiene practices, infection-control measures, medical treatment, communication, travel policies, and human resource policies.

Engaging Women and Underrepresented Minorities in STEM Fields


Diversity drives innovation and sparks fresh thinking, creativity and breakthrough ideas that are the lifeblood of our business and our industry. To this end, we support STEM education programs that aim to increase diversity within STEM fields. Our programs have a strong focus on supporting women and underrepresented minorities. We implement many different programs in the communities where we live and work, with the objective of ensuring STEM education is accessible to all.
