BAE BLIMP: BAE Systems is planning to conduct the first flight of a new airship designed for persistent surveillance by October. The system was designed with civil applications in mind, such as imagery and communications for policy and emergency responders. Eventually however, BAE is eyeing military applications, including persistent surveillance, communications relay and targeting support.
