[Ocp-europe] RuggedPOD production cost reduction concept

Hi Bill,

Yes we thought, but when we will have to run a maintenance we will have 
refill with Argon which is not really easy, while the balloon is using 
standard "air". But we still can pursue this option if you have some 
ideas on how to implement ;)
