NASA Mars UAV is an American unmanned aerial vehicle developed by the US National Aerospace Agency.

The NASA Mars UAV unmanned aerial vehicle is a fairly specific drone, the main purpose of which is to study the atmosphere of Mars. In fact, this device is designed to work on another planet, and can not be used on Earth, which is due to specially adapted devices that can last a long period of time in a discharged atmosphere of the fourth planet of the solar system. To date, we know of the presence of two drones of this model, which continue to be tested before their subsequent flight to Mars.

The American unmanned aerial vehicle NASA Mars UAV is made in a configuration that combines the capabilities of a multi-copter and an aircraft, which is primarily due to the fact that the device can change the axis of its flight by taking off in a vertical plane and subsequently moving in the atmosphere in a horizontal plane. The aircraft has compact overall dimensions, due to which the device is characterized by good maneuverability.

In the near future, an unmanned aerial vehicle of the NASA Mars UAV model will be able to replace vehicles moving on the surface of the planet, which in turn is a very weighty argument in their favor.

 The power unit of the NASA Mars UAV UAV is represented by two electric motors powered by a rechargeable battery, while, in order to increase flight autonomy, solar panels are also used here.
