MetadataShow full item record
An analysis of conventional lighter-than-air vehicles was conducted to determine if a modular design approach was feasible. Once this was accomplished, a conceptual design using the modular approach is presented for a vehicle to serve as a platform for conducting lighter-than-air flight tests and research. In addition, a general discussion is included on the program management organization, flight tests , and instrumentation of such a vehicle.
