In order to summon an exocraft, their respective geobay must be built, which serves as a landing pad for each vehicle. To unlock them, head to the Space Anomaly Construction Resource Terminal and switch to the Transport Mod option, where all exocrafts are displayed. Each type of geobay is purchased using salvage data obtained by discovering technology buried on various planets.
