A lighter-than-air airship system, having a multitude of uses, with a primary purpose being the dispensing of water over a raging fire, where access by personnel and ground equipment is difficult. The airship system comprises an aerodynamically configured structure having a semi-rigid keel or skeleton, where lift is provided in part by helium, with the keel mounting a liquid management mechanism preferably consisting of a reservoir open to the outside for resupply of liquid or water, a conduit leading to a holding tank, and a piping distribution and nozz...
1. A hybrid airship, platform system for delivering and dispersing large quantities of liquid while in flight and hovering modes over specified ground areas, where dynamic lift for said airship system is derived by its aerodynamically shaped body and engine fans to provide lift in an airstream, and static lift is achieved by a non-combustible lighter-than-air gas confined therewithin, said airship system comprising:a.) a semi rigid, light-weight frame encased within a skin and aerodynamically configured to provide lift in an air stream while in a flying ...
