Title (EN) ATMOSPHERIC BALLOON WITH BALLONET WALL AND METHODS FOR SAME
(FR) BALLON ATMOSPHÉRIQUE DOTÉ DE PAROI DE BALLONNET, ET SES PROCÉDÉS
Abstract:
(EN) An atmospheric balloon assembly includes a balloon shell extending between upper and lower apexes. The balloon shell includes a plurality of shell gores, each of the shell gores includes first and second shell edges extending between the upper and lower apexes. A ballonet is coupled along the balloon shell, the ballonet includes a ballonet panel including first and second ballonet apexes and first and second ballonet edges extending between the first and second ballonet apexes. The first ballonet edge is coupled along one or more shell gores of the plurality of shell gores, and the second ballonet edge is coupled along another one or more shell gores of the plurality of shell gores.
(FR) L'invention concerne un ensemble ballon atmosphérique qui comprend une enveloppe de ballon s'étendant entre des sommets supérieur et inférieur. L'enveloppe de ballon comprend une pluralité de fuseaux d'enveloppe, chaque fuseau d'enveloppe comprend des premier et second bords d'enveloppe s'étendant entre les sommets supérieur et inférieur. Un ballonnet est accouplé le long de l'enveloppe de ballon, le ballonnet comprend un panneau de ballonnet comprenant des premier et second sommets de ballonnet et des premier et second bords de ballonnet s'étendant entre les premier et second sommets de ballonnet. Le premier bord de ballonnet est accouplé le long d'un ou plusieurs fuseaux d'enveloppe parmi la pluralité de fuseaux d'enveloppe, et le second bord de ballonnet est accouplé le long d'un ou plusieurs autres fuseaux d'enveloppe parmi la pluralité de fuseaux d'enveloppe.
