This paper presents and describes a new lenticular shaped airship that allows 3D omnidirectional movements. The airship is intended to be part of a cooperative aerial system based in the synergy between an airship and a group of micro-quad rotors capable of long time missions as environmental, biodiversity monitoring, WiSAR missions, road monitoring, detection of forest fires, etc. The emphasis in this paper is the presentation of hardware of the main component of the system: an innovative lenticular airship, the control algorithm and the low size generic hardware platform specially developed for all the robots in the system.
