Modern version of original airship
Unique patented lift technology. Creates airship with ‘game-changing’ capabilities
Disruptive to the cargo and logistics status quo
Twice the weight and 30 times the cubic payload of a 747. Very low operating costs. Barge-like payload, range of an aircraft, ton-mile costs of a truck, vertical life of a helicopter.
Creating new transport opportunities
Reverse the trend towards intermodalism – the airship is unimodal. Delivery to locations with no infrastructure – western China, Alaska, Siberia, Africa etc
Game changing logistics solutions
Delivery of cargo to any point on the globe without restrictions and ability to move greater weights and higher volumes than previously possible..
VTOL and Infrastructure Independence
The airship is capable of VTOL operations at full payload, rendering various infrastructure requirements – like airports and runways – unneccessary.
The airship’s weight payload (66 tons or 250 tons) and the dimensions of the cargo bay itself will make it the leading way to transport oversize or low density cargo via air, including many cargos not previously transportable by air.
The cargo airship has a cruising speed of 100 knots at 12,000 feet, and a maximum speed of 120 knots.
Range & Fuel
Up to 3,100 nautical miles for the ML866; 6,000 nautical miles for the ML868. Energy requirements and costs are approximately a third of traditional aircraft costs.
Cargo Handling System
No ground loading or unloading equipment required at departure or landing points. ISO Containers can be shipped via airship, avoiding port and terminal bottlenecks. For oversized and heavy load cargo the airship has an optional underslung cargo solution
Fuel & Maintenance
Maintenance of the vehicle will be easier and less expensive than an aircraft. No ‘pressurization cycles’ leads to a long useful life.
