Israel may field a high altitude airship designed to stay in a geostatic position using solar power. The platform can be used for long range photographic intelligence as well as a communications relay much as a satellite is now used.
 


"It will be an airship the size of a football field, nothing like it in the world," says engineer Avi Baum, head of the R&D department at Malam in the IAI. "The quality of the photographs will be very high, with optimum resolution. The quality will be good enough to read the license plates on moving cars on highways."
