Lockheed to fly intel blimps over Afghanistan

Lockheed Martin has won a $184 million Army contract for battlefield surveillance. The system is called PTSD, or Persistent Threat Detection System. The Washington Business Journal reports that PTSD allows the military to keep a sharper eye on enemies in Afghanistan. The contract calls for 29 blimp-like vehicles that will carry sophisticated surveillance equipment as they fly over Afghanistan. They provide around-the-clock coverage of broad geographic areas for weeks at a time.
