Army Preps 'Unblinking Eye' Airship for Afghanistan

Army Preps 'Unblinking Eye' Airship for Afghanistan --Northrop Grumman has announced a $517 million, five-year contract to build three combat airships for the military. By Noah Shachtman 17 Jun 2010 The military already employs a fleet of blimps to look for enemies and relay communications. But none of them are as big, as high-flying, or as far-seeing as this Long Endurance Multi-Intelligence Vehicle, or LEMV. It’s supposed to float at 20,000 feet for up to three weeks at a time, snooping on absolutely everything below with a variety of sensors. "Basically what we see it as is an unblinking eye," LEMV project manager Marty Sargent tells Inside Defense.
