Gravcraft are vehicles that employ Gravity control technology for transportation purposes.

  • Gravcraft are flyers and typically travel through a planet's atmosphere.
  • Please see Gravity control technology for more information.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

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.
  • Starships also employ gravity control technology, but this article only details terrestrial, interface, and close-orbit gravcraft.
  • Please see Starship for more information.
