Currently, NASA and other space agencies are developing drones for use on Mars.
We want to develop a Vacuum Airvehicle, that shall support the network of drones on Mars. The Amarship has the role of a Communication hub for the drones, it shall be able to carry payload, has a weather observation station attached and shall work as a reacharging station for the drones.
On top of that, the Amarship is ideal for long distance flying and wide range scanning.
The concept is the one of a multilayerd chamber, that has a vacuum inside.
Mars appears to have an atmosphere in which the operation of a vacuum airship would not only be possible, but beneficial over a conventional balloon or dirigible.
