Meet the game-changer

The world of defence is changing. Budgets are tighter, threats are increasing in number and variety, and the need for multi-sensor intelligence is growing. Enter Airlander.

Powerful capability

Airlander's combination of payload and endurance is typically between 10 and 100 times greater 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.
