We achieve the autonomous, stabilised flight of a 2-meter-long airship, which will perform amongst many purposes tests of various sensor technology and advertisement purposes. In case of a light wind the airship will autonomously utilise on-board sensors to keep its position and alignment steady. For this purpose our team attached a flight controller and four brushless motors. The required control commands are calculated from the data of the GPS, the compass, the accelerometer and the gyroscope. 

How do we proceed?

Step 1: Development and construction of a foil-hull of 2 meter length.  

Step 2: Calculated decision for a suited drive concept after consideration of weight, complexity and manoeuvrability. 

Step 3: CAD design of the accumulator-/flight controller casing and the engine-nacelles. 

Step 4: Production of the components. In many cases by 3D print.  

Step 5: Programming of the flight controller.

What have we done so far?

  • The hull has been completed. 
  • A decision was made: We will use a drive concepts with four adjusting engine-nacelles, which are positioned around the hull. 
  • Preparation of the CAD model is ongoing.
