The government has hired defense subcontractor Lockheed Martin to design and 
develop an enormous blimp that will be used to spy on Americans, according to 
the Athens News. Government agencies such as the NSA are anticipating that as 
early as 2009 the blimp will be operational and begin supporting new ways of 
monitoring everything that happens in the country.

A prototype of the blimp is already being developed at a cost of $40 million. 
The spy ship, called the High Altitude Airship, will be seventeen times larger 
than the Goodyear Blimp and hover 12 miles above the ground. Although it is very
large it will be invisible to both the naked eye and ground radar because of its
distance from the earth. Fuel economic and self sufficient, it will be powered 
by solar energy and will be able to fly for years at a time.

The U.S. Army Space and Missile Defense Command has already conducted a study to
determine some of the uses of the spy ship. It has the capability of monitoring 
an area 600 miles in diameter at a time with surveillance equipment, such as 
high-resolution cameras. The government has ordered 11 of them ­ enough to 
monitor every parcel of land in the U.S.
