NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) said Monday night that its Ingenuity Mars helicopter was in need of a software update and that a new date for its historic flight would be announced next week. .

In a release, the agency said that the Ingenuity team had identified a software solution for the "command sequence issue" first discovered on Friday, April, 9, during one of its last rotor tests -- a "high-speed spin-up test" -- before its previously announced April 11 flight date. .

JPL said that over the weekend it had tested multiple potential solutions and determined that "minor modification and reinstallation of Ingenuity’s flight control software is the most robust path forward.".

In addition, it noted that while modifications to the flight software and its development are "straightforward," validating the changes and completing the uplink to Ingenuity is anticipated to take a while and a timeline for rescheduling the helicopter's tests are still in progress

In order to reach the desired outcome, and move the new software to the vehicle, the team will have to develop, validate and upload software, load the software onto the Ingenuity flight controllers and boot it on the new software
