A prototype Zeppelin NT airship should take to the skies within 12 months.

Zeppelin Luftschifftechnik, the same firm that built the original craft said this week that passengers will be taken aboard after test and registration flights. It is planning uses for environmental research, meteorology and air pollution analysis.

The Zeppelins have been designed with a triangular rather than a round profile frame using CAD/CAM, particularly Microcadam’s Helix Design System.
