Don't call it a blimp. The Aeroscraft is a Rigid Variable Buoyancy Air Vehicle. This advanced airship's internal ballast system allows it to hover, ascend and descend without a runway takeoff, and offload cargo without re-ballasting. Possible applications range from entertainment travel to military missions. We head to a historic hangar in Tustin, Calif. to check out the latest Aeroscraft prototype.

      I bet this ship looses a lot of payload and fuel with systems to compress helium, but lets see if it works out.

      Great idea for FEMA or other agencies like that. For DARPA to be involved is interesting; a single bullet could take all of that cargo out, so where is the cost benefit in that equation?
