Mars City

MARS CITY is a program spearheaded by the Italian Mars Society (IMS) which main goal is to provide an effective test bed for field operation studies in preparation for manned missions to Mars. Preliminarily to its construction, IMS has started the development of an immersive Virtual Reality (VR) simulation of the MARS CITY  (V-MARS).

V-MARS HABITAT

The MARS CITY habitat has been included into the V-MARS simulations. As the V-MARS- Missions are carried more refined design is being developed by IMS.

Analog space suit

We are designing a new space suite based on MDRS-like analog spacesuit.

MotiGravity

Motigravity is Motivity omnidirectional treadmill modified to simulate Martian gravity (MotiGravity).

V-MARS ATV

In Mars city different Martian All Terrain Vehicle (ATV) design have been foreseen, carried out starting from basic vehicles drivable on earth gravity as a Virtual Reality based design exercise.
