Blimp ride & demo of high tech sensors

Media opportunities are available by appointment (contact: 808-221-3552)

The Office of Naval Research is testing the use of blimps and cutting edge sensors for today's mission requirements. Science and Technology International's (STI) Littoral Airborne Sensor - Hyperspectal (LASH) system is onboard a blimp that will be berthed and flying from the Manassas (VA) Regional Airport for four days, Aug 4-8, 2003. (Other times available to media by request.)

The 30-minute test flight will simulate searching and identifying a terrorist camp in the nearby woods.

The LASH system is designed for passive and immediate detection of targets of interest invisible to the naked eye that can be submerged in the water at tactical depths or land areas.

Think submarines, underwater mines, whales, and other marine mammals.

Steve Huett, ONR's project manager on the LASH program, and Director of Airship Advanced Development Program Office at the Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR), will be available for interviews.

Contact Linda Jameson at (808) 221-3552 to arrange flight times and to interview STI experts. Linda Jameson is Corporate Communications Director for STI.
