TB-30  

AIR SURVEILLANCE SYSTEM WITH TETHERED BALLOON
Through a research partnership with the American company SkyDoc Technologies,the british company Allsopp Helikites, the Chinese company Fangzhou Sungzhou and the University of Shanghay SPACE airships, the only Brazilian operator of blimps, aerostats, tethered balloon, developed a surveillance system based on an an ellipsoid ("Helikite") as an aerial platform, with a launch cradle and transport which includes the necessary equipment for transportation and operation from autonomous land vehicle or boat during thirty days with a payload up to 30 kg.

The modern concept of "Helikite" combines the lifts of a helium gas balloon with the lift of a sail (aerodynamic airfoils) to allow greater flexibility increasing payload and high stability in extreme wind conditions (up to 100 km / h).
 
The system allows for operation at heights of up to 1200 meters (in up to 22 km radius of sight) day and night for several days, requiring a small crew and maintenance.
 
Compared with any other manned aerial platform or not, the TB-30 presents higher cost-benefit rate while performing aerial surveillance or data relay, especially in harsh environments due to its operational simplicity.
 
The system components meet ANAC and DECEA standard requisites (RBHA-101) for the operation of tethered balloons, including an emergency deflation system at distance.
 
During transits, the deflated balloon is transported in a special cradle that integrates a generator, a winch, compartments for bottles of helium and the ground station connections. In this condition the system has the rollon-rolloff capability for loading in small cargo aircraft or passenger aircraft cargo compartiments and can also be quickly installed on a lightweight road vehicle (pickup) or naval vessel, just using forklifts.
 
The storage set contains all the necessary equipment to launch, operate and collect Helikite.
 
The imaging system, integrated with a basic gyro-stabilized on three axes, allows the use of different types of sensors and transfers data through a fiber optic cable to a ground station which in turn transmits via the Internet or micro -wave to the end customer.
 
A specific software places the images on a digital map and allows recording of the operation.
 
The most common imagery options includes a camera infrared and visible light, allowing zoom capability than forty times.

DESCRIPTION
The set of equipment and services includes:

The system described above can be lifted until 300 ms, having capability to identify a person through the visible light sensor; detect temperature variations in industrial equipment and facilities thorugh the tremographic sensor; and to keep uplift for long periods transmitting images to an emergency center.

The system can be also quickly deployed by road to be operated for any points without any need of external logistic support.
 
When installed on a naval vessel, it can be an excelent tool to identify oil spill either in rivers, lakes or oceans.

TB-100

The balloon has approximately 750 cubic feet (about 21 340 m3), of 112 ft (31 m) in diameter, 125 ft (38 m) in height and weighing 7000 pounds (3176 kg). When folded for storage and transport, it fits in a box 8 ft x 8 ft x 24 ft (2.5 mx 2.5 mx 7.3 m). When full and ready for service he gets 80% of its volume with helium and 20% air, and this air is confined in an internal compartment called "ballonet."


The ballonet is the bottom of the flask, and is separated from the helium by a diaphragm tissue. The purpose of the ballonet is to create a compartment with air to be used as the pressurized fluid of the balloon against the wind and allow expansion and contraction due to the variation of helium temperature and altitude.
The pressurization is necessary to prevent the balloon deforms due to the wind, greatly increasing the coefficient of drag. This is a passive system that requires no electricity or active controls. With the action of wind on the sail surface of the balloon, a set of control valves and release automatically pressurizes the system, the same levels of wind pressure by balancing the overall pressure and preventing the balloon undergoes deformation.

These valves operate the same as the expansion or contraction of the helium, inflating or deflating the ballonet.

This system was developed and used for decades in the balloons lifting of logs, with proven efficiency, particularly in areas of intense weather activity.

The balloon material is specified according to the intended use, and consists of a shaped layer of polyester fabric, covered by an outer plastic polyurethane. The outer layer is pigmented white to protect the tissue and to minimize UV solar heating. The inner layer is pigmented black opaque, so as to maintain the inside of the flask dark, allowing easy viewing of orifices, whenever necessary inspection.

The balloon project incorporates several technical details such as helium supply nozzles; windows ballonet inspection; access service; helium valves, valves ballonet; mooring anchors, lifting anchors, and items of protection against lightning electric. All these details are taken into account during design and manufacturing processes that are monitored by a Quality Control System.

The construction starts with the fabrication and inspection of basic materials. The fabric is then cut using scissors industrial automatically controlled by computers. The panels are then manually glued and sealed using heat and seams special tape from both sides. Some of these seams are reinforced with the particular type of application of a plot similar to the belt carrier. These frames produce a pattern of distribution of load across the balloon fabric uniformly. The assembly is done by fabricating several major sections, which are then joined together giving the final form of the balloon.

The work is not small, mainly due to the size and weight of each of these sections. In the final stages of construction, about 20 people are required to move or manipulate the balloon is positioned on the floor. Procedures are well developed and tested for this process in order to prevent the bag from being accidentally damaged during their installation.

Once the assembly, the balloon is moved to a hangar, where it is inflated with air to final inspection. This inspection includes checking for leakage points, using lanterns from the outside and internal visual inspection by the dark side of the fabric.

It is also a pressure test, in which the balloon is above normal pressure, so as to obtain assurance of structural capacity. It can then be painted externally according to the wishes of the client, with urethane paint. After drying the paint, it is closely packed in a container using a sheet of polyethylene plastic for protection.
