The big issue is that we need to time the delivery with the proper "alignment" to Mars; outside of those windows of opportunity, it is not cost effective to launch stuff to Mars.

 

So, how many launches can we make per year ? 2, 3 ?

Launch windows[^] to Mars occur about once in two years. Of course you can make multiple launches during each window.
