Study on High Altitude Aircrafts and Airships (HAAS), deployed for specific aeronautical and space applications

Objective

The proposed "USE HAAS" study objectives aim to examine prospective aeronautical research agenda in HAAS that European deployment of High Altitude Aircraft (HAIRCRAFT) or High Altitude Airship (HAIRSHIP) implies.Especially the main objectives of the pro ject are to develop a EU advanced aeronautical research strategy in the HAAS sector and develop alternative solar-regenerative fuel cells propulsion for aircrafts. A single HAIRCRAFT, like the US "Helios" aircraft, or HAIRSHIP, like the UK "StratSat"airsh ip, based on aviable design and existing technology would have in certain applications excess of higher capacity than satellite and could be capable of dynamic sharing with terrestrial or satellite users.Recently completed experiments with the "Helios" H AIRCRAFT deployed at 20 km altitude show significant advantage in Communications/Mobile Wireless Service. A single HAIRSHIP equipped with relevant sensors could provide Emergency Communications and Disaster Services, National Securityand Intelligence Servi ce, and to Risk Management. The proposed "USE HAAS" study would contribute and provide the European Community with an option to launch significant AeroSpace program of High Altitude Aircrafts and Airships for multiple or specific uses. The proposed study will last 18 months.The structure of the workplan will be based on 5 parts: Part 1: Analysis of the world state of the art including European work done in HAAS aeronautical uses. Part 2: Developing tentative Research Objectives for European Deployment of HAAS with regard to variety of user services, users services, and prepare Potential Aeronautical ResearchProgramme to support developed Objectives. Part 3: Discussion of developed Objectives and Potential Aeronautical Research Program with EU Community t o examine perceived benefits. Part 4:To disseminate recommendations on the Objectives and the Research Agenda. Part 5:To issue the Final Report including conclusions and recommendations.
