NorthStar on a Blimp
Speaking of blimp bots and IR-based localization, Chris Anderson is actually trying to put Evolution Robotic's NorthStar system on a Jed Berk Blubber/blimp bot: “Blimp UAV: handling navigation indoors”.
He's got some pictures and discussion of the NorthStar evaluation kit.
Earlier blimp UAV posts from Chris: “Blimp UAV project: The beginning”, “Blimp UAV project: spec'ing it out”

The photograph is from Operation Plumbbob (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Operation_Plumbbob), it's not a Zeppelin :-)
Thanks for the UAV blimps links.
