Disaster Relief Dirigible

The Airship Archangel looks like something straight out of Sky Captain & the World of Tomorrow! This disaster relief/emergency response airship is designed to enhance the capabilities of service organizations in providing medical services & transportation of personnel, supplies, & equipment. A lightweight frame & hybrid integration of propulsion, energy generation & storage, & tethered wind-power generation make it a super-efficient & relatively quick method of delivering emergency care to otherwise inaccessible areas.

Designers: Thomas Grimm, Reindy Allendra, and Dr. Gregory Smedley

    Better stock up on oxygen masks.

    That high above the clouds and the gondola wide open? The cold and low oxygen would make that uncomfortable very fast.

    Airplane cabins are pressurised for a reason, you know…

    Also, try making that gondola airtight when it’s closed with that long seam. We’re even having problems keeping the windows in our passive house design airtight…

    Besides al the physical problems with this design, it does look good.

    fringe is awesome! someone should design and build the headsets they are using in the redverse

    Awesome concept. It is rather imaginative. However, an open deck like that, even at lower altitudes, would leave the passengers at the mercy of the wind. While winds are usually calm at ground level, they can pick up dramatically at moderate altitudes.
