Gravity control technology is the key technology that makes gravcraft work.
- The gravity control produces both weight-neutralization and thrust. Also know as grav, anti-grav, or contragrav.
- This control of the force of gravity allows construction of vehicles, like the Air/Raft and G-Carrier, mapping of object mass through Densitometers, and safety equipment like the Grav Parachute.
