The most recent patent of Sergey Brin, which has been published in 2021, US10988226B2 – Methods and apparatus for constructing airships relates to aerial vehicles. It was very interesting to note that Brin is exploring this area of technological domain.
Airships are lighter than air aircraft that rely on buoyancy generated by gas that is less dense than the surrounding air to provide lift for flight. An airship is typically made out of a structure attached to an envelope that contains lifting gas such as helium or hydrogen. Certain airships, such as rigid and semi-rigid airships, may incorporate a structural framework to aid in maintaining the envelope’s shape. The technology presented herein relates to systems, equipment, and methods for constructing airships in a quick and cost-effective manner and the design and construction of components used in the production of rigid or semi-rigid airships.
