The hovercraft is an amphibious vehicle sustained on a cushion of air with directional control provided by fluid dynamic forces. This means that a hovercraft floats in the air like a helicopter and is moved horizontally by vectored thrust provided by air flows generated by the hovercraft itself.

Each hovercraft is equipped with one or more fans to provide the pressure necessary to support its own weight and for directional control.

The weight of the vehicle is sustained by low pressure air contained in perimeter skirts made in KevlarŪ textile that limit the loss of air, lifting the entire vehicle and its payload off the underlying surface.

A hovercraft can effortlessly overcome any unevenness in the terrain, provided that it is no higher than the height of its air cushion containment skirts.
