Lockheed Martin has not given up on hybrid airships despite losing a half-billion dollar order two months ago.

The surprisingly detailed marketing video above appeared on  Lockheed’s YouTube channel last week for the first time.

After the Northrop Grumman/Hybrid Air Vehicles team captured the $517 million contract from the US Army to build the long-endurance, multi-intelligence vehicle (LEMV), I wondered if Lockheed’s Skunk Works division would remain in the competition.

Bob Ruszkowski, a system engineer for Skunk Works, assured me last week during an interview at AUVSI that Lockheed remains in the airship market.
