Futuristic Remote Operations Vehicle and Observatory (ROVO) for NASA

Lee Rosario has submitted his latest concept proposal for NASA, ROVO stands for Remote Operations Vehicle and Observatory, it’s a futuristic vehicle fueled by a micro nuclear reactor core. Nuclear power is a technology that’s already being considered to power extended space flights and boasts several proposed technologies that would aid in the successful exploration of inhabitable planets. The traditional HUD design would be advanced to a liquid Augmented Reality projection system, the primary source of systems information that interfaces with a custom mission suit designed to interface with the ROVO. It can function autonomously, which eliminates the traditional steering column in place of a synapse rotational head display system inside the driver’s helmet. In other words, you simply look towards where you want to go, ROVO does the rest.

Designed as concept proposal for NASA by Lee Rosario, ROVO features specialized, self-contained direct-drive engines that are incorporated into the six electrically powered main wheels. These wheels are supported by a robust active suspension system, similar to extreme off-road racing, but designed with redundancies in the event of failures.

The final major piece of the ROVO is an attached support research drone that is designed into the aft tail section. The drone can be deployed to provide additional support and data collection while on surface op missions on the surface of Mars.

One thought on “Futuristic Remote Operations Vehicle and Observatory (ROVO) for NASA

  1. Somewhat fanciful in appearance. I suspect that "Scania AXL" in a Mobile Laboratory/Habitat Configuration, would be a more practical design…
