The present invention describes a dual suspension catenary system which includes aspects of both an internal catenary system and an external catenary system. The dual suspension catenary system of the present invention retains and expands upon the advantages of the internal and external catenary systems, such as larger payload suspension and envelope integrity while decreasing the disadvantages (e.g., envelope breach and aesthetics).
[ We claim:] [1.]1. A system for suspending a payload from an airship comprising:a cable system comprising at least two cables, at least two upper load curtains fixed to an internal surface of an airship envelope, and at least one lower load curtain fixed to an internal surface of an airship envelope, wherein the at least two cables connect the at least two upper load curtains to the at least one lower load curtain;at least one loop tab attached to the airship envelope; anda frame fixed to the at least one loop tab for attaching the payload thereto.
