Title
(EN) LIGHTER THAN AIR SPHERE OR SPHEROID HAVING AN APERTURE AND PATHWAY
(FR) SPHERE OU SPHEROIDE PLUS LEGER QUE L'AIR DOTE D'UNE OUVERTURE ET D'UN CIRCUIT
Abstract
(EN)
A lighter than air apparatus (1) is provided with a gas impermeable sheeting material (29) having a pathway (25) either extending through the apparatus (1) itself or adjacent to the apparatus (1). One or more control surfaces (27) are provided proximately to an aperture (26) in the pathway (25) for deflecting air passing through the pathway (25). A propulsion unit (55) within the pathway (25) propels air through the pathway (25). The pathway (25), the control surfaces (27), and the control unit (figure 19) allow the lighter than air apparatus (1) to control its bearing and efficiently maintain its position over the Earth.
(FR)
Un appareil plus léger que l'air (1) comprend un matériau d'enveloppe (29) étanche aux gaz et un circuit (25) traversant l'appareil (1) lui-même ou adjacent à celui-ci. Une ou plusieurs gouvernes (27) sont disposés près d'une ouverture (26), dans le circuit , (25) pour dévier l'air traversant celui-ci. Un ensemble de propulsion (55) disposé dans ce circuit (25) propulse l'air au travers de celui-ci. Ce circuit (25), les gouvernes (27) et le système de commande (figure 19) permettant de commander le gisement de cet appareil plus léger que l'air (1) et de maintenir efficacement sa position au dessus du sol.
