The Helikite Balloon comprises a helium-filled balloon and triangel wing construction, having a rigid fiber spine, with the balloon shaped aerodynamically.
The balloon is generally oblate-spheroid in shape Solid spars provide attachment points for payload equipment. Triangel wing to balance balloon Fly status.
The Helikite Balloon design is intended for all-weather, high-altitude operation.
The round, stubby shape allows it to be flown in any weather or altitudes both the main aerodynamic lift and the aerostatic lift are at the front, while the spar weight and keel are at the stern. Therefore, a Helikite remains stable in relatively high winds.
