Cargo Compartment Volume
The COSH system compresses non-flammable helium into the helium pressure envelopes to allow the vehicle to manage buoyant lift similar to the submarine’s ballast management underwater. COSH allows the Aeroscraft to act as a “flying submarine.”
- The biggest obstacle that airships face when tackling the cargo function is their inability to control buoyancy. The requirement for ballast exchange, ground infrastructure, and need for runways significantly limited the usefulness of traditional airships for cargo applications.
- The COSH technology eliminates these requirements and aeroscraft is the only airship with hover capabilities making it possible to offload at unimproved landing sites with minimal infrastructure
DESIGNED FOR GAME CHANGING
Full-scale Prototype Dragon Dream
A scaled-down prototype of the 66-ton payload vehicle has been completed and fully demonstrated its functionality
The 266 ft (79 m) long Model ML806 ( 6-ton payload) full-scale prototype has been manufactured and tested under Project Pelican in partnership with NASA, DARPA, and DoD.
The test confirmed that technology is ready to move forward with the advancement of the commercial operational aeroscraft.
Aeros’ proof-of-design technology demonstrator can be scaled up to become a cargo airship capable of carrying 250 tons.
