Gatsonis, Nikolaos A.
This project involves the redesign of a commercially available miniature blimp in order to perform indoor detection of airborne hazardous chemicals. A 60-in. long blimp is retrofitted with two gondolas and modified to reduce weight and increase lift. One gondola houses the horizontal propulsion unit and the wireless camera. The second gondola houses the vertical thrust unit and deploys a chemical detection strip in view of the camera. The redesigned blimp allows for indoor real-time detection of hazardous chemicals.
