Solar Ship builds hybrid aircraft to serve isolated people and places allowing for efficient transportation without the need of fossil fuels, roads or runways. This enables isolated people in remote areas and crisis zones to operate when infrastructure is dysfunctional. Solar Ship blends a set of technologies to achieve industrial strength solar powered aviation: aerodynamic lift, aerostatic lift and solar cells. This creates cost efficient, long range, energy efficient air transport for areas with minimal or unreliable infrastructure. The solarship gets enormous carrying capacity from its design, which also provides a large surface area for solar photovoltaics. Combining these two design assets enables a number of applications, such as: • Cargo to remote areas • Medical Cargo • Cold Chain Cargo • Field Research • Camping • Remote Electrical and Communication Systems • Diaster Relief • Heavy Lift Cargo • Linking Remote Communities
