1 LAYOUT: Concept 1 (Concepts are simple representations of ideas and do not represent the final design and form)

DRONES DOCKED TO SHIP

MINING VESSEL WITH HELPERS This concept is a mining vehicle where all mining equipment, processing, 3D printing and excavation is housed in the vehicle itself. It will have small drones that detaches from the main vehicle on arrival. Some of these drones will be able to collect volatiles that can be used for fuel and excavation, others will be used to maintain and repair the ship when needed. Simpler tasks can be performed autonomously, others can be performed with pre programmed directions from earth. + Main vessel can mine and drones can collect fuel and perform repairs + Mining operation in one vessel + Redundancy with multiple drones
