The Aeroscraft’s patented control of static heaviness system and ceiling suspension cargo deployment system automates weight-balances and permits terrestrial or marine cargo deployment. This will allow for faster cargo on-loading and off-loading and precise on-loading and off-loading from hover position.
Manpower for on-loading and off-loading payload from the Aeroscraft will require only the pilot. No ground crew is needed for cargo handling or any other aspect of the Aeroscraft’s flight.
One obstacle that conventional and hybrid airships face are their inability to control buoyancy without venting helium. Another operational challenge faced by airships and hybrid airships is the inability to control static lift. Their requirement for external ballast exchange and existing ground infrastructure significantly limited cargo utility. Once the cargo is off-loaded, existing helium-dependent airships become extremely light, and this static lift causes them to float away. To combat these forces, they require external ballast exchange, whether rock, ice, water, or lead, to keep them anchored to the ground.
Another way to understand VTOL is to compare the Aeroscraft to a submarine. For example, when a submarine needs to dive into the water, it takes on water to make it heavier. When the submarine needs to surface, it releases that water to become lighter. Similarly, the Aeroscraft can control its weight by releasing and taking on air, controlling the heaviness or lightness of the vehicle.
Because the Aeroscraft is equipped with VTOL capability, it can deliver cargo from point-of-origin to point-of-need directly. Furthermore, other hybrid airships are runway dependent at higher operating weights, but the Aeroscraft does not need a runway, even at full payload. Because of its innovative control-of-static-heaviness (COSH) technology, its computer-controlled virtually-automated directional thrust and station-keeping technology facilitates off and on-loading stores while in hover.
Due to the mammoth scale of the vehicles in the Aeroscraft fleet, the Aeroscraft is designed with unmatched cargo bay dimensions, making it a perfect vehicle for transporting large, oversized items that are normally difficult to transport. Items that are typically indivisible can now be shipped from point-of-origin to point-of-need, without the usual difficulties of traditional ground and air transportation.
