Lighter-than-Air technology can outperform today's transportation modes, in time and fuel economy

Highlights

1
86% of the World’s population live in developing countries, representing massive growth potential for all markets.
2
General Cargo is projected to grow globally beyond 6.8 Billion Metric Tons by 2025, a growth rate of 3.5% YOY.
3
Fuel consumption is on the rise - in 2019, the World consumed 1.2 trillion gallons of fuel!
4
Of which, the US consumed more than 143 billion gallons at an estimated cost of $372 billion for the consumer.
5
If we assume a 40% loss of fuel economy due to grade, that equals $150 billion in unnecessary cost within the US alone.
6
Seeking a cheaper transportation alternative, the US Government has invested more than $1.2 billion in LTA technology.
7
Nonstop, direct path access with no grades allow LTA to easily outperform all other forms of transportation.
8
And unlike the $200 billion per year spent on roads and rails, LTA uses a free infrastructure - the Earth’s atmosphere.

Our Team

While serving as a DOD contractor, the idea was borne out of necessity when Pakistan closed its border with Afghanistan for the third time in an attempt to squeeze the US taxpayer for more cash. Greater payloads, minimal reliance on ground infrastructure and greater fuel economy make LTA a better transportation solution.

Why Voyager Global?

It’s our philosophy that to revive Lighter-than-Air technology, one must return to its roots; the period when it was successfully used to transport passengers and cargo across continents, oceans and around the world – long before the dominance of fixed-wing or rotor-wing aircraft.

Understanding the German’s design and operational practices is key to the future of LTA.

As the World’s population gains greater access to the global marketplace, the demand for goods will only grow larger. LTA will not only capitalize on this growth, but aid it in a significant way.

And with LTA, direct path access means no bottlenecks in the supply chain.

Can LTA compete with today's transportation technology ?

Can the technology compete on a ton-mile per gallon basis with our current modes of transportation? We performed a comparison pitting the Hindenburg's fuel economy, using 1930's diesel engine technology, against today's top two performers - the railroad and shipping by vessel. What we discovered was game changing. A 1930's airship can not only match the railroad's fuel economy, but has the added advantage of not being confined to an indirect path encumbered with multiple stops, decelerating at population centers and lost time in switching yards, which is so inherent in the railroad’s costly ground infrastructure.

Additionally, the railroad isn’t everywhere as is seen in the following map displaying its infrastructure. This means the last mile of the delivery process must be accomplished by the less fuel-efficient trucking industry. This same reality is also true for shipping by vessel which is restricted by coastline.

What about actual operating costs, is it still a viable technology ?

With LTA, there are no grades because the buoyant force cancels the effects of gravity, and gravity more than drag has the greatest negative impact on fuel economy.

Additionally, the US rail network is comprised of nearly 140,000 miles of track and over 100,00 bridges.

According to a 2017 report created by the ASCE, federal forecasts predict a 40% increase in US freight shipments by 2040.

On average, the 7 Class I railroads in the US spend approximately $20 billion per year upgrading and maintaining their rail infrastructures.

LTA neither requires nor is confined by costly ground infrastructure.

Lighter-than-Air Technology is a "super-green" technology.

LTA has the capability to deliver anything from anywhere to any destination nonstop, and is not restricted by costly ground infrastructure, nor is it affected by grades, intersections or traffic congestion making it the most cost effective, fuel-efficient technology of our time.

Join us in our quest to revolutionize transportation as we know it, and free the growth of our global economy from the shackles of ground infrastructure.
