  • Theoretical-Ligther-than-air-ship

A lighter-than-airship system for the purpose of dispensing water over a raging fire where access by personnel and ground equipment is difficult. The airship system compromises an aerodynamically configured structure having a semi-rigid skeleton where lift is provided by helium, with the skeleton mounting a liquid management mechanism 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 nozzle assembly below the airship system to spray the liquid or water, like an artificial rain over selected areas to control or distinguish fire.
