Several geophysical techniques are available for the investigation and characterization of shallow subsurface. Most commonly used are electrical methods, seismic refraction and reflection methods, multichannel analysis of surface waves, gravity, magnetic, electromagnetic induction and ground penetrating radar. Mars is the one of the terrestrial planet, under discussion from several years due to interesting facts obtained from surface features including the evidences for the presence of water. Surface features on Mars include plans, mountains, impact crater, lava flows and dust cover. The possibility of life on the Mars is a question mark which is yet to be defined. In this article GPR technique is proposed for planetary missions to explore the subsurface of Mars. Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) is a recent technology which provides high resolution picture for near surface structures.
