About Aeroscraft: An Aeroscraft is a new type of Rigid Variable Buoyancy Air Vehicle, designed to control lift in all stages of air or ground operations, including the ability to off-load heavy payloads without the need to re-ballast. Aeros has received initial funding from the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) and the Department of Defense for contracts to demonstrate its internal buoyancy management technology, or Control of Static Heaviness (COSH), which permits the Aeroscraft to vertically lift heavy cargo while maintaining independence from infrastructure and the external ballast exchange requirements that have historically limited cargo airships. The key features of the Aeroscraft include a rigid structure; helium-derived lift that reduces fuel requirements; vertical takeoff and landing, (VTOL); and operational abilities at low speed, in hover, and from unprepared surfaces.
