Zeppelin NT Measurement System
Airships have been built again since several years in Friedrichshafen. The quiet, smooth floating of the Zeppelin NT ("New Technology") gives the feeling of lightness, its superior flight characteristics open the door to many different fields of operation. The quietness is deceiving. The zeppelin is exposed to enormous forces and many tests are necessary before start-up. The data were available on the laptop on board for analysis already during the test flights. A precise examination of all interactions was done later back on the ground.
