World Surveillance Group, Inc. (OTCBB: WSGI), a developer of lighter-than-air unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) and related technologies, announced today that the Company has successfully completed additional tethered flight testing of its Argus One airship in Easton, Maryland. The Argus One flew under tower control at Easton Airport where it carried out aerodynamic exercises to test the newly improved and reinforced airship envelope as well as improvements to mechanical systems located in the airship's pod bay unit.

The company is currently working with the test directors at the U.S. Army's proving ground facility at Yuma, Arizona to reschedule the Argus One's flight test exercises and expects to return to Yuma in the near future, according to a prepared statement. These rescheduled flight test exercises at Yuma are expected to include aerodynamic testing to demonstrate the Argus One's unique flight capabilities as well as payload integration testing to demonstrate the airship's platform capabilities. In the interim, the company intends to continue tethered flight testing of the Argus One in Easton, MD.
