The PLIMP Airship is a unique aircraft that can maneuver and move quickly like fixed-wing aircraft, hover and vertically take off and land (VTOL) like a helicopter, and operate efficiently and safely like a blimp—all on a single platform.
Due to its buoyancy, the PLIMP Airship is more efficient than helicopters and fixed-wing aircraft for surveillance and inspection operations. Unlike other blimps that require a large ground crew, it can be operated remotely by a pilot and flight technician.
It is also larger than other drones, enabling it to operate for much longer distances where line of sight (LOS) is an FAA requirement. Its size also supports collision avoidance, as others can see it from farther away.
The PLIMP Airship can carry any payload required for a specific mission, such as:
