Tow tests were conducted on a 530,000 cubic foot natural shape balloon for the purpose of estimating the aerodynamic drag coefficient of this balloon over a wider range of relative wind speeds than the 8.5 to 12.0 knot tests conducted in previous experiments. These tests are part of a series of investigations conducted to evaluate the feasibility of utilizing a natural shape balloon system in ship-to-shore cargo transport.
