Extended regional and border surveillance:
Airships provide long-term surveillance capabilities over extended regions or borders, including in their “drone” (crewless) configuration. Far more economical than traditional aircraft and drones, airships also offer the possibility of landing or loading/unloading without ground-based infrastructure.
Secure Transport and Logistics:
As for highly-precious goods in the commercial context, airships provide fully secured transport capabilities for sensitive cargos, even where there is no ground facility.
