Airship Surveillance Advances Test Flight Program
LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwire - April 7, 2008) - Special Report: Airship Surveillance, a WENR
Corp. (PINKSHEETS: WNRC) strategic marketing partner, continues to make
significant progress in the test flight program of its R&D1 unmanned
airship. The latest series of tests focused on the airship's flight
handling characteristics. Using a combination of ducted fans coupled with
improved aerodynamic surfaces, R&D1 demonstrated precise handling in a
crosswind environment. These very positive results have enabled the
Company to make significant progress in its goal to deliver the first
production model airship (L2) by late spring 2008.
"The test flight program is focused on the development of several key,
enabling technologies and the incorporation of these technologies into the
airship's flight control system, ground control station, and autopilot. The
speedy advance of the program means we are on schedule with key elements of
the program and actually ahead of schedule overall," stated Sandy Mangold
of Airship Surveillance. He continued, "Programming of the base control
system is essentially complete and we are now preparing to concentrate on
refining the autopilot system. This system will permit autonomous flight,
once we have established operations within restricted airspace. Truly,
these are exciting times."
The Company also reports that it has expanded its engineering capabilities
with the addition of a senior aeronautical engineer and the adoption of
CATIA (Computer Aided Three Dimensional Interactive Application) design
software. CATIA is the industry standard for design software and it is used
by many of the major aircraft companies.
"Expanding the design staff and upgrading our capabilities allows us to
better serve our clients by producing world class products. We are
extremely pleased with both of these developments," stated Dan Green of
WENR, a strategic partner of Airship Surveillance.
