Sasquatch might need to brush up on his stealth skills pretty soon, because a custom remote-controlled helium-filled airship will be performing aerial grid searches with a high-tech camera setup, looking for evidence of bigfoot in sighting hotspots across the U.S.
The Falcon Project is getting a boost in their coverage of suspected bigfoot areas, because their custom-built 45 foot long airship should be ready by next spring. The ship, which is being designed and built by Remote Aerial Tripod Specialists, Inc. (RATS), will use two helium-filled bodies, joined by a gyro-stabilized camera platform, which will be capable of taking thermal/infrared/HD video footage across its search grid.
The Aurora MK II will also be outfitted with carbon dioxide detection equipment for detecting animal exhalations, as well as equipment for recording infrasound. The airship, which has an expected top speed of 35-45 mph, will be launched and remotely piloted from a motorhome that will serve as the command center until the device is at cruising altitude. Once the Aurora reaches altitude, it will perform an aerial grid search via autopilot over areas up to five miles away from the command center.
