Airship Surveillance Announces Successful Airship Test
LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwire - March 12, 2008) - Airship Surveillance, a strategic partner of
WENR Corp. (PINKSHEETS: WNRC), is pleased to announce the success of the
launching of the R&D 1 Airship. On March 11th the Company with a crew of
five, prepared the R&D Airship, preformed detailed checks on the guidance
system and released the airship into the air at approximately 6:00 AM.
The airship performed better than planned. The airship was kept on a tether
to stay within regulations regarding the testing of this type of unmanned
vehicle. The pilot of the unmanned airship preformed the following test
maneuvers: straight and level flight, yawing, climbing and decent. All
maneuvers were achieved using the company's proprietary thrust vectoring
system and without the use of conventional controls.
The flight was successful and the Company confirms it is in discussions
with several end-users that contract with military, Homeland Security and
commercial users. Photos and video of the test will soon be available on
the Company's website (www.airshipsurveillance.com).
"The airship had two flights and both were a success. This means we can
focus on finalizing discussions and the completion of the L2. The L2's
production schedule has been moved forward and we anticipate an early
completion," stated Dan Green of WENR Corp.
