The NDTA has selected and announced Aeroscraft as the recipient of the 2014 Corporate ‘Distinguished Service Award,’ in recognition of Aeros’ invaluable support of the goals and aims of NDTA. The National Defense Transportation Association is a non-political, non-profit educational association of government, military, and industry professionals dedicated to fostering a strong and efficient global transportation and distribution system in support of the economy and national security of the United States.
The Distinguished Service Award will be presented to Aeros during an awards ceremony Wednesday, September 30, 2015, 8:00am-8:30am, at the Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center in Washington D.C. The ceremony will be held concurrently during the final day of the 2015 NDTA-USTRANSCOM Fall Meeting, which will take place September 28-30, 2015.
“Aeros is honored by this recognition from a highly respected organization, dedicated to serving the logistics needs of those in service of our national defense,” expressed Aeros’ founder and CEO, Igor Pasternak. He added, “The US Department of Defense is challenged with urgent requirements to increase global reach for war fighter’s logistical capability. These challenges will be addressed and mitigated with the deployment of the Aeroscraft cargo airship, capable of delivering enhanced mission and route flexibility, disaster relief capability and fiscal acuity from reduced fuel consumption.
The Aeroscraft is a new heavy-lift, variable-buoyancy cargo airship featuring an onboard buoyancy management system, rigid structure, vertical takeoff and landing performance, and operational abilities at low speed, in hover, and from unprepared surfaces. The discriminating military utility in the Aeros technology approach is VTOL and hover capability at max payload without the use of off-board ballasting, and off and on-loading payloads while hovering; this capability is unique to the Aeroscraft and enabled by Aeros’ Patented control-of-static-heaviness (COSH) onboard buoyancy management technology. This new capability will dramatically decrease the time and cost for delivering large ‘project’ and container cargo around the world, especially to austere areas with no pre-positioned infrastructure.
