Revolutionizing Flight

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.

The PLIMP Airship offers:

  • Scalability
  • Unmanned operation
  • Flight without a runway or launch/recovery system
  • Much safer operation than other drones
  • Slow and safe descent in the event of a power outage

Larger Yet Lighter Design

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.

Any Payload, Many Missions

The PLIMP Airship can carry any payload required for a specific mission, such as:

  • EO/IR cameras
  • Multispectral camera systems
  • Communication relays
  • Sensors for agriculture, pipeline, and power transmission line inspection
