Abstract : This report accompanies a new airship advanced design tool called ?Advanced Airship Analysis and Design.? This report describes the tool?s features, explores sizing and performance results for several airship configurations for several missions and outlines the influence of advanced technologies on these results. The tool may be used to evaluate existing or proposed airship designs. It may also be used to create new designs. The tool includes integrated modules for aerodynamics, stability and control, structures and weight, propulsion. These are brought together in a module for sizing and performance estimation. The tool is executed in Microsoft Excel. A detailed user manual accompanies the tool and this report.
