This paper deals with the design of hovercraft where the hovercraft can travel on land as well as on water which is an unmanned aerial vehicle with a maximum take-off weight are 0.8 kg. The design of this hovercraft which is capable of hovering and forward motion. The hovercraft design criteria involve the stability and power to weight ratio. The air intake in a hovercraft plays a major role in the flow of air into the skirt. This design involves a multi-propeller hovercraft. There are holes designed for optimizing the design. The hover height is 15 cm. An open plenum type of hovercraft with a bag skirt configuration opts. The design of hovercraft is done via CATIA.

Important Announcements

All the authors, conference coordinators, conveners, and guest editors kindly check their articles' originality before submitting them to IJCERT. If any material is found to be duplicate submission or sent to other journals when the content is in the process with IJCERT, fabricated data, cut and paste (plagiarized), at any stage of processing of material, IJCERT is bound to take the following actions.
1. Rejection of the article.
2. The author will be blocked for future communication with IJCERT if duplicate articles are submitted.
3. A letter regarding this will be posted to the Principal/Director of the Institution where the study was conducted.
4. A List of blacklisted authors will be shared among the Chief Editors of other prestigious Journals
We have been screening articles for plagiarism with a world-renowned tool: Turnitin However, it is only rejected if found plagiarized. This more stern action is being taken because of the illegal behavior of a handful of authors who have been involved in ethical misconduct. The Screening and making a decision on such articles costs colossal time and resources for the journal. It directly delays the process of genuine materials.
