Helium One is teaming up with Lockheed Martin (NYSE:LMT) to transport helium via airship from its project in Tanzania to port for shipping.

The startup hopes the partnership will result in it supplying helium to Lockheed's entire fleet of hybrid airships, which will launch for commercial use in 2018.

It already has an order pending for 12 craft from a firm in Alaska.
