Argus One Flight Video Footage and Images Unveiled

KENNEDY SPACE CENTER, FL--(Marketwire - Jan 31, 2012) - World Surveillance Group Inc. (OTCBB: WSGI), a developer of lighter-than-air ("LTA") unmanned aerial vehicles ("UAVs") and related technologies, announced today that the Company has posted approved video footage and images taken at the recently completed Government testing and demonstration of the Argus One UAV in Nevada. In preparation for subsequent coordinated flights and demonstrations, the Argus One UAV has been re-stationed at facilities in Nevada where the airship remains inflated inside a hangar facility pending favorable weather conditions and scheduling permits.

The Argus One is a mid-altitude, unmanned, LTA airship designed to hover above the earth's surface for extended periods of time. The uniquely constructed low observable airship is designed to cope with winds in a more efficient manner than traditional "blimp-like" airships, while delivering a cost-effective solution based on minimal ground and human infrastructure.
