Africa: Adamus To Begin Skyship Survey of Wildlife/Climate Change


Advanced Airship Technologies From “Terror War” Adapted for Peace



by Gordon Duff, Senior Editor


Mombasa (WNT)  The Adamus Group announces an 18 month project in partnership with governments of Africa, the USAID and the International Wildlife Foundation to operate two Skyships on their first “peaceful” mission.

The advanced LTA (lighter than air) defense platforms have been used in counter-terrorism and drug interdiction efforts in the past. 

This is the first application of “blimps,” each supplied with the most powerful sensor arrays ever to have been used for a non-military mission.

The platforms, capable of continent wide missions are equipped with advanced sensor packages, synthetic aperture radar, low light high definition streaming video and “next generation” FLIR (infared) optics.

Communication is through direct microwave and satellite up-link.

Several television networks have shown an interest in participation as the platform capabilities, previously “military only” technology have, not only the ability to aid in the understanding of wildlife, climate and agricultural development and coastal marine environments but have wide geological and even archaeological capabilities as well.

Project manager James Hanke of Adamus told reporters in Mombasa:

“We thank the US government and Department to of Homeland Security for making available these advanced capabilities.  It is our hope, in what we deep a “ploughshares” effort, to provide a bank of data that will inspire a generation of scientists of every discipline.

This project, we predict, will have an immediate impact on securing both wildlife resources and, at the same time, supply a wealth of previously unavailable data to ensure responsible and productive land management and resource development.

In many cases, we begin with a ‘blank slate,’ we have little idea what we will find but, for certain, our ‘after next generation’ imagery and sensor capability will open, not only new vistas for investment but tourism as well.”

The advanced airships are to begin operation in first quarter 2013.  A number of universities have indicated a desire to acquire data and a “mission based’ tasking committee of scholars and scientists will be overseeing operations in concert with wildlife management and security officials.
