Hyderabad: LTAs occupy a niche in Aerospace: says Prof. Pant at GITAM

Lighter-Than-Air (LTA) systems occupy a niche in Aerospace systems owing to their special capabilities, such as the ability to stay aloft even when stationary, owing to the force of buoyancy, said Prof. Rajkumar S.Pant, Department of Aerospace Engineering, IIT Bombay. He graced as the chief guest in the inaugural function of a two-day workshop on ‘Design and Sizing of an Indoor Airship’ at GITAM Deemed to be University, Hyderabad on 20th September 2022.

The Department of Aerospace Engineering, School of Technology has been organizing this hands-on workshop. He told that the success or failure of this workshop will be measured by only one thing, within one year if there is an LTA system developed and deployed on this campus, then only is a successful one.

Felicitation to Rajkumar S Pant

Airships and Aerostats are two applications of this technology that are finding increasing applications worldwide for many tasks such as aerial surveillance, wireless communication, product promotion, and long endurance high altitude platforms, Prof. Pant explained.

Airships provide a low-cost alternative for transportation of passengers and cargo in remote areas, where surface modes of transportation are difficult to provide and they do not require long runways and have very low fuel consumption, he added. He sincerely appealed to the student not to go abroad for higher studies without any scholarship.
