Argus 1
defensetech.org...-16121

>>Argus One is an unmanned autonomous airship with automated control for individual body modules for improved flight stability and aerodynamic control. The design features the ability to control the rigidity between each module and the ability to pivot. The modules are operated by microcontrollers based on aerodynamic requirements. The airship’s altitude, overall response and handling characteristics and flight control utilizes a system of ballonets contained within each individual module, thereby creating a dynamically adjustable airship. The design of the Argus One differs significantly from many of the LTA rigid platforms that have been in operation for over a century.

Wow....that wouldn't be obvious at all to an enemy!
Might confuse them enough to give them time to make a safe get away!

Haha it sounded so cool. Until I saw the picture. I'm sure it'll do the job though.

O.k...wait..this is just a big balloon and they want to use it as surveillance, I'd understand maybe if it reached heights of 100,000ft+.....But it doesnt, it goes 10,000 to 20,000 and its a balloon. . . A big, massive balloon - Its got SHOOT ME written on all over it, few bullets from an AK and this piece of shizen is blowin back down to the ground..unless im missing something, this is a bag of w**k

Once the cloaking devise is enabled this will be undetectable. Then the only way we will know it is there will by by it's shadow.....hmmm how will they cloak that?

Have fun trying to shoot something flying at 20k feet down with an AK. Also I cannot think of the word you tried to censor there. 'W**k'. Does it rhyme with crank?

"Sir...there appears to be a giant sperm trailing us....what should we do?" ...."Er...there's a what?".... "A giant flying sperm sir.....I think it's watching us" ...."Soldier I think you've been on duty for too long...In fact I think you might need a transfer!" ....."But sir, The sperm!....It's following us"......"Soldier! You're Dismissed!....Please place someone who's NOT crazy in command, and report to the nearest psychiatric facility!" ....... " *sigh*.....Yes sir"

'We need spermicide, STAT!'

I don't know why but 'I think it's watching us' had me laughing pretty hard.

yup, lol.

O.k maybe not an AK - but it isnt really "stealthy" is it, a super massive flying sperm - you'd think your tripping seeing that, maybe thats what effect they want, a psychedelic effect.

Not really the best of craft, if a "terorist" **COUGH** enemy of invading country **COUGH** seen this on the ground, he wouldnt need to bow his self up, he'd just think "o.k this is easy" pick up a stone, throw it and run - mission accomplished.

easy to get rid of it.... just deploy a giant egg-cell... then the giant-sperm would try to fertilize it, and forget all about it's spying mission
