German Aircraft To Get Payload Integration Work In
The newest UAV airship from the German manufacturer Sanswire has
arrived in Maryland for initial inspection of the craft, and the
integration of intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR)
technologies into the UAV's sensor bay. Sanswire has turned the
STS-111 over to specialized electronics engineering firm, Eastcor
Engineering, which has already undertaken similar work on
Sanswire's SkySat UAV.

Chairman of Sanswire's Board Mr. Michael Clark said, "We are
working with Eastcor and our other partners to bring the STS-111 to
the marketplace as quickly as possible. My main focus of effort at
this point is to get the craft fully integrated and tested with
possible payloads and ready for sale. This focused effort, along
with my desire to expand the scope of the flight demonstration, has
necessitated a rescheduling of the planned flight demo and its
relocation to a flight field near Eastcor's facilities in Maryland.
I know our shareholders and investors are anxious to see the craft
in action, but before we do that, we must work on making the craft
fully operational and ready for the market."
"This is an important time in our company's history," said
Sanswire CEO Glenn Estrella. "We are about to cross the threshold
from a development stage company to a fully functional commercial
enterprise. That means that we must focus on producing product and
generating future sales and revenues. The important work that
Eastcor and our other partners will be doing for us in the near
future helps make that goal a reality."
