Unmanned airship project as a supply tool for the Arctic

This article discusses a project of an unmanned airship for supplying the Arctic. The problems of supplying remote points in the Arctic are discussed. The advantages of airships and the possibility of building an unmanned vehicle are considered in detail. The required parameters are calculated for carrying capacity, cylinder volume, propulsion system

Keywords: airship, unmanned aerial vehicle, supply, Arctic.
