Title
(EN) TACTICAL HYBRID STRATOSPHERIC AIRSHIP
(FR) DIRIGEABLE STRATOSPHÉRIQUE HYBRIDE TACTIQUE
Abstract
(EN) A hybrid stratospheric airship (1; 1') is described configured for the combined and optimized use of aerostatic and aerodynamic force, comprising: • an inflatable central body (10); • a first and a second inflatable wing (20A, 20B) which extend from the central body (10) protruding laterally from two opposite sides of said central body (10), each of said wings (20A, 20B) having a portion (21A, 21B) which is proximal to the central body (10), an end portion (22A, 22B) which is distal from said central body (10), a leading edge (201A, 201B), and a trailing edge (202A, 202B); • an outer shell (11) having a main shell portion (11A-11C) associated with the main body (10), and a first and a second side shell portion (11D, HE) associated with said first and second wing (20A, 20B), respectively; • at least one main spar (12) extending transversely to said central body (10), which structurally supports said first and second wing (20A, 20B) and which crosses said central body (10), said at least one main spar (12) being a rectilinear spar which is interposed between the leading edge (201A, 201B) and the trailing edge (201A, 201B) of said first and second wings, and which is connected to said distal end portions (22A, 22B) of said first and second wings.
(FR) Est décrit, un dirigeable stratosphérique hybride (1 ; 1') conçu pour l'utilisation combinée et optimisée d'une force aérostatique et aérodynamique, comprenant : • un corps central gonflable (10) ; • une première et une seconde aile gonflables (20A, 20B) qui s'étendent à partir du corps central (10) faisant saillie latéralement à partir de deux côtés opposés dudit corps central (10), chacune desdites ailes (20A, 20B) comprenant une partie (21A, 21B) qui est proximale par rapport au corps central (10), une partie d'extrémité (22A, 22B) qui est distale par rapport audit corps central (10), un bord d'attaque (201A, 201B), et un bord de fuite (202A, 202B) ; • une enveloppe externe (11) comprenant une partie d'enveloppe principale (11A-11C) associée au corps principal (10), et une première et une seconde parties d'enveloppe latérale (11D, HE) associées auxdites première et seconde ailes (20A, 20B), respectivement ; • au moins un longeron principal (12) s'étendant de manière transversale audit corps central (10), qui soutient de manière structurale lesdites première et seconde ailes (20A, 20B) et qui croise ledit corps central (10), ledit longeron principal (12) étant un longeron rectiligne qui est interposé entre le bord d'attaque (201A, 201B) et le bord de fuite (201A, 201B) desdites première et seconde ailes, et qui est relié auxdites parties d'extrémité distale (22A, 22B) desdites première et seconde ailes.
