Airbag launching refers to a way to launch vessels with Launching Marine Airbags. It is a methodology for ship launching utilizing air bags. These marine airbags are made by synthetic-tire-cord reinforcement layers， their nick name is Marine Airbags.
This kind of ship launching method has the advantages of requiring less permanent infrastructure, low risk and low cost. The ship launching airbags provide support to the hull of the ship, marine airbags rolling motion take a vessel launch into water. Thus it is obviously more safety than other options like sideways launching.
Unlike most other launching methods that are fixed infrastructures, airbag launching has relatively less limitations and can be used in versatile ways. It overcomes the disadvantage of fixed track launching in which capacity of shipbuilding and ship repairing is limited by the fixed infrastructures especially in small and medium-sized shipyards.
