The emphasis on these projects seems to be high-altitude. Possibly this is to be above the operational ceiling of enemy aircraft? If so, the dirigible would not have to worry about defending itself, as it would be theoretically out of range. It would be difficult to reach such heights with a wing, as the low air density would cause airflow to not be enough for sufficient compression for a jet engine to work. So, the point of a dirigible may be to be out of the enemy's reach, but still above. I would say this would be for intelligence purposes, but other uses may exist, such as bomb-dropping.
