Jet Drone small aircraft concept has been designed to act as a support vehicle in outer space missions, or in recognition operations. In order to move, it is equipped by two reactors: one that allows horizontal progression and a couple of smaller reactors for vertical movement. It is made from different kind of lightweight plastic materials, the wing can be transformed to become a dock stand when in “land mode” and stretched back again when in “flight mode”.
Jet Drone spacecraft would be able to do most of the missions without a pilot, however there is a cabin designed to host a person. It could be used for missions such as: rescue an abandoned astronaut, or as a similar way to a lifeboat, just in case the main spaceship encounters some issues.
