This research covers the design, construction, and testing of a hybrid flight platform called the Aeroship. The Aeroship is a combination of current aerodyne and aerostat technology that have been merged at an optimal ratio. In order to create an efficient design, flight testing was employed as a catalyst for design changes. The final design was then flight tested for performance validation using videogrammetry.
