Apparently they want to use this in Afghanistan?

Don't they realize that a slow (really slow) mover such as this that stands out like a sore thumb...

is going to be prey to anybody clever enough to put together about $3000 dollars worth of RC airplane gear (easily obtainable) and an IED?

WTF??

Re: Army testing new SPY BLIMP......how stupid are these people?
I've seen some articles that say a new class of blimps can fly at 100,000 feet. Most countries don't have the tech to do anything to something 100,000 feet up. At that height you'd barely see it. But with a nice camera, I'm sure it could see you just fine. I say this is reasonable technology and not as stupid as you think.

They say this one operates at 20,000 feet.

No...

I happen to work for a medical gas company.

One of the gases we sell happens to be helium.

Over the last year we've had THREE high schools with balloon projects (we donated the helium) and they managed to get that high.

Wouldn't take much more to power the damn thing and make it maneuverable and put an IED in it.

That's IF it was that high, this one only operates at 20,000.

This project is a white elephant if I've ever seen one.

Why???

More oppressive bullshit to hover over us and find us "committing crimes" that they can throw us in prison for.

This is not for "homeland security", or to "save us from the terrorists".

Hey, I live really close to the Goodyear Blimp base in Pompano Beach.

I've seen it flying everyday for the last few weeks.

So they don't seem to have a problem with helium.

On the other side of the coin, last month our helium supplier raised our fill price for balloon grade helium 263% and then the next week stopped refilling our tanks.

Our primary customers were florists.

They're only even show you this "technology" so that when you see a UFO, they can tell you it's theirs, and that it's this. Same way they want to tell you EVERYTHING you see in the sky is a drone when really, it's fucking not them. They are covering their bases. Everything you see in the sky is not our government. It's only very slightly more sophisticated then telling you it's Chinese lanterns.

Use them in Afghanistan? What do you think this is? 2003? Anything they "want to do" in Afghanistan has long been done, what a ridiculous shamble of a story just to show us their bullshit blimps.

I know there are some benefits to using a helium airship:
Cheaper than a satellite to build and launch.
Can stay aloft for weeks.
Can be used for a multitude of performance tasks.

I don't remember where I read it, but I recall an article estimating that Earth's "nonrenewable" helium supply will be gone in 25-40 years.

I guess I hope they perfect Earth-based fusion that mimics the Sun's hydrogen to helium conversion, or else an MRI (amongst other things) will become very expensive.

Nice post G.House.. I'm curious to the reason for the dramatic increase of 263%....?

These new blimps fly at extreme elevations. Higher than any RC craft can go. Higher than a land to air missile can reach.

They fly so high that they appear about the size of a bird to the naked fro the ground.
