This small zeppelin has been designed to save lives.

It is equipped with sensors, radars and cameras able to spot small boats with immigrants lost at sea.

The prototype measures 9 meters.

It can lift up to 15 kilos of equipment.

European researchers hope it will soon become an effective, low-cost rescue tool in maritime waters.
