DIODON Drone Technology brings world’ first inflatable, amphibious family of drones. With Ingress Protection rating of 45, the DIODON drone can operate in adverse weather conditions, heavy rain or snowfall and is capable to launch and land on water, as demonstrated at SOFINS, Special Operation Forces Innovations Network event in March 2017.
DIODON drones are perfectly suited for applications in search and rescue missions, coastal guard surveillance, military reconnaissance missions in rough environments. Foldable to a small backpack, can be rapidly deployed by inflating arms with an aid of electric compressor or even hand pump.
Each DIODON unfolds in a few seconds and can be operated by a single person.
Each DIODON is easily transportable thanks to compact, foldable inflatable structure.
Each DIODON can be fitted with a wide range of sensors to suit specific needs.
Each DIODON is completely waterproof, therefore deployable under heavy rain or even directly from water surface.
