Airships Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast 2015 - 2023
Albany, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/19/2016 -- An airship is a type of aerostat or lighter-than-air aircraft that can navigate through the air under its own power. Unlike fixed-wing aircraft or helicopters, airships are lighter-than-air (LTA) typically using helium to stay aloft. Airships are equipped with engines for power generation whereas aerostats are tethered to the ground, by a cable that tends to provide power. An airship's main component is one or more gasbags, a lightweight skin containing a lifting gas to provide buoyancy. The envelope of an airship may form a single gas bag, or may contain a number of internal gas-filled cells. An airship also has engines and crew and/or payload accommodation, typically housed in one or more "gondolas" suspended below the envelope.
