Army to Buy 302 ft Long Hybrid Airships for Persistant Survaillance

Here is an interesting development with possible Coast Guard implications:

“The company (Northrop Grumman) has received a $517 million Army contract to build up to three of the huge military airships, called the Long Endurance Multi-Intelligence Vehicles (LEMV). Such airships would serve as surveillance stations at 20,000 feet (6,096 meters) above sea level and could stay on watch for as long as three weeks at a time.”
