Ogden, Utah police first-in-nation to use surveillance blimp - Published 23 September 2011
The police chief in Ogden, Utah, said the city could launch a surveillance blimp by Christmas as part of the city’s crime-fighting efforts.

The 54-foot-long craft will be equipped multiple cameras and operated by pilots via remote control. It would run for five to seven hours at a time at an altitude of around 400 feet.

The blimp can follow a preprogrammed route, or be instructed to follow a single individual or vehicle.
