Surveillance Airship Test Flight Successful

Techsphere Systems demonstrates potential for defense and homeland security use

The SA-60 low-altitude surveillance airship made a successful test flight in St. Mary's County, Maryland, demonstrating its capabilities and proving all systems operable. The airship is a prototype of new ships being built by Techsphere Systems International, using research and development of 21st Century Airships. It flew with a two-man crew at 1500 feet within a three mile radius. Future ships will fly at much higher altitudes and in an unmanned capacity.

The U.S. Navy has recently entered into an agreement to test the SA-60 and Cyber Aerospace, Techsphere's marketing partner, is conducting demonstration flights over the next several days to determine performance characteristics for possible future military applications. In addition, the Sierra Nevada Corp. has entered into a contractual agreement with Techsphere to provide technology integration for government end-users.

Demonstration flights will be held for the media on Monday, June 28, 2004 at 10:00 a.m. at the Captain Walter Francis Duke Regional Airport. In the case of inclement weather, the event will be held on Tuesday June 29th.

Captain Walter Francis Duke Regional Airport is located outside Washington DC in Hollywood, St. Mary's County MD; 53 miles southeast of Washington, D.C., 70 miles south of Annapolis, and 85 miles south of Baltimore. Driving MD Route 235 to St. Mary's County Airport Drive, the airport is 4 miles northeast of Leonardtown, MD. Call 301-373-5416 for general airport information and/or directions.
