Described herein are features for a high altitude lighter-than-air (LTA) system and associated methods. The LTA may include a continuous multi-chamber super-pressure balloon (SPB). The SPB may include two, three, four or more chambers. There may be more than one such multi-chamber SPB. A ring may provide structural support between each chamber. A plurality of tendons may extend upwardly and downwardly from the ring around respective upper and lower chambers to bias each of the SPB chambers to a pumpkin shape. The SPB may use a compressor to provide a var...


1. A continuous multi-chamber super pressure balloon (SPB) comprising: a continuous envelope configured to be inflated to form a plurality of two or more chambers, wherein each chamber comprises a maximum inflated width, and the continuous envelope when inflated defines a waist, the waist having an inflated waist width located between each chamber that is less than the maximum inflated width of each chamber;a barrier disposed inside the continuous envelope and fluidly separating a first fluid compartment from a second fluid compartment; anda fitting conf...
