Three linked Craters of Mars
when are we going back and will it have any UAE satellite????
They have not decided yet that which rocket they will use.
We must have a rover this time. Or else no need to go back if we are just surveying from skies.
No, most likely, we are sending a heavier orbiter with better equipment from GSLV Mk3.
Rover will follow next time. I will call it sane,
Mangalyaan was actually a TD because we couldn't send all equipments due to weight problem, we didn't have required capacity at that time. Today, we got our own third generation launch vehicle (GSLV Mk3).
Launching a rover with orbiter again on GSLV Mk3 will suffer weight limitation and low equipments & payloads. Instead, India's fourth generation launcher HLV has entered second phase of development. So, instead of 10 tonnes cap. GSLV 3, we must be using 20 tonnes cap. HLV.
Third important point, landing on Mars is completely different job against that on Moon. In case of Moon, you can enclose your rover inside a capsule like lander which lands straight on Moon (with gravity sensors) and rover comes out. But in case of Mars, you have to face atmosphere for which you need heat shield, and then, gravity is high, so have to use retro thrusters for landing like Curiousity rover. This needs extensive testing & will easily take 3-4 years.
The most important point, we don't even have complete data of Martian atmosphere & surface, how will we develop heat shields, map, landing system & land on this? Let's send a better orbiter & land on it first.
We can ask for atmospheric data from NASA?

Nobody leaks complete data & nothing for free.
If NASA shared MAVEN information with us in past, because we gave them data from Mangalyaan. Still, they'll give only a fraction of data.
Data is not our real problem, our problem is required time to test landing systems on Mars which are completely.different from moon.
Plus, what's advantage of your probes if you need data from someone else?
To get new data which wasn't discovered before. Like proof of water on moon, solving of constellation mystery which ISRO did.
