This paper presents an airship design for double hull arrangement with trust vectoring capabilities for oceanic surveillance platform. In this proposed design, it offers construction for smaller units however may be difficult to control in turbulence. The problem is solved by identifying the optimal design and control parameters. Studies on the design were employed to find the optimum parameter to be used for the ocean applications; such as communication hub, station keeping and monitoring ocean activities. In order to drive the airship to desired navigation path, an optimal control technique were proposed. The simulations results show that airship design were able to converge to the desired mission. Although the model suffer from rather small noise, the control scheme were able to overcome the problem.
