The world of defence is changing

Many critical services across commercial, governmental, and defence & security rely heavily on satellites, fixed, or rotary-wing aircraft. Despite the capabilities these platforms provide, they are often expensive, scarce, or vulnerable. Airlander’s multi-day endurance provides a flexible pseudo-satellite that can create resiliency and build adaptable, mobile services.

Airlander's configuration can host large, powerful sensors; capable systems; and advanced computing & communications systems.

An overview of Airlander's multi-mission capabilities

Powerful communications & surveillance capability

Airlander provides cost-effective airborne data collection, processing and communication for commercial and military applications. Carrying tonnes of systems for days at a time, it provides 10 to 100 times the capability than other surveillance or communications aircraft.

Airlander has the ability to collect data with a variety of on-board sensors, process and exploit it, and disseminate intelligence across multiple channels. It can simultaneously act as an airborne intelligence command and communications centre.

Airlander is an extremely capable and adaptable asset, particularly when deployed as a multi-aircraft constellation featuring an organic logistics distribution capability. This minimises the need for critical resources and fixed infrastructure, reducing operational predictability and increasing force resilience.

During thirty-six years in Military Intelligence, I saw innumerable initiatives promising to revolutionize the quality of intelligence afforded Army Soldiers and Joint Forces. Almost without exception they delivered, at best, marginal gains at ever-increasing cost. Airlander, backed by an innovative and customer-outcome focused team is a notable exception – world-class capabilities are now available at a fraction of the cost of today’s ISR platforms, addressing essential threats and needs.
