Title (EN) AIRSHIP WITH A CONTROLLED VARIABLE PROFILE
(FR) AÉROSTAT DIRIGEABLE À PROFIL VARIABLE COMMANDÉ
Abstract:
(EN) The invention relates to an airship (1) comprising a flexible envelope (2) having at least one adjustment region (4) provided with two longitudinal adjustment elements (5, 6) mounted in opposition and mobile in relation to each other between a maximum distancing position and a minimum distancing position, the two longitudinal adjustment elements (5, 6) being connected to each other by a group comprising a plurality of cables (7, 7', 8, 8', 9, 9') crossing the inner space (3) of the envelope, each of the cables (7, 7', 8, 8', 9, 9') cooperating with a plurality of tightening points (10) provided along each longitudinal element. The cables are connected to at least one tightening module (20) that can exert a tightening or loosening action on the cables and thereby bring the longitudinal adjustment elements (20) closer together or move them further away.
(FR) Aérostat dirigeable (1) comprenant une enveloppe souple (2) présentant au moins une zone d'ajustement (4) pourvue de deux éléments longitudinaux d'ajustement (5, 6) montés en opposition, mobiles l'un par rapport à l'autre entre une position d'éloignement maximal et une position d'éloignement minimal; -les deux éléments longitudinaux d'ajustement (5, 6) étant reliés l'un à l'autre par un ensemble comprenant une pluralité de câbles (7, 7', 8, 8', 9, 9') traversant l'espace intérieur (3) de l'enveloppe; -chacun des câbles (7, 7', 8, 8', 9, 9') coopérant avec une pluralité de points de serrage (10) prévus le long de chaque élément longitudinal; -les câbles étant connectés à au moins un module de serrage (20) susceptible d'exercer une action de serrage ou de desserrage des câbles et ainsi rapprocher ou éloigner les éléments longitudinaux d'ajustement (20).
