About Airship – Description of the project

AIRSHIP envisions an innovative use of a known transportation mean: flying ships.

Such vehicles (also known as ekranoplans or wing-in-ground -WIG vehicles) inherit all the advantages of conventional airborne transportation, while being more energy efficient and environmentally friendly, both from the carbon footprint and the acoustic noise pollution point of view.

AIRSHIP aims  to lay the foundations of a new class of fully electrical unmanned aircraft system, the UWV (Unmanned WIG Vehicle) that brings together speed, flexibility and energy efficiency.
