Horizion H2X / The modular solar airship

Horizion H2X
Horizion H2X

Horizon H2X is a modular, multifunctional and semi rigged airship. Its unique and aerodynamic appearance improves the flight performance and differs it from the classical airships and their historical Cigar-Shape. Large solar panels and hydrogen-oxygen fuel cells will produce and supply the electrical power of the airship. The cockpit, gas-cells, control system and the engine form a universal platform, which could be loaded with different, specified modules (gondolas), referring to its operation purpose. This possibility improves the operating grade; it will be more efficient and economical, which reduces the operating costs significant.
