This budget is hardly enough to launch a small research satellite around Earth. To launch a vehicle to Mars which will actually be useful, they need at least something in the order of $200M. That's the experience of other nations who have launched to Mars. In addition, It takes at least about five years to design and construct such a vehicle. To do it in less than two years is a sure recipe to failure.
