EOS is a zero-emission, unmanned airship designed from the ground up to cater to a wide range of roles across multiple industries. developed by avalon airships, the vehicle is designed to improve policing, surveillance, ambulance and rescue services, while it can also be used commercially, in areas such as freight, entertainment, and farming among others.

avalon‘s EOS is a fully autonomous, zero emission airship, designed for mass production with flexible payload and operational capabilities. it utilizes a fully electric drivetrain and a streamlined hybrid design, allowing it to operate silently at high speeds for long periods. paired with fully autonomous operation, EOS can operate night and day with very little downtime and at minimal cost. water-only landings give this helium-filled airship a huge amount of possible landing sites.

the aircraft’s water ballast system rapidly sucks up water, increasing its net weight upon landing and preventing accidental take-off to ensure safe and reliable operations. for police, surveillance, ambulance and rescue service applications, EOS is equipped with a remotely-piloted drone, which allows it to give direct aid in emergencies. a range of storage compartments allow the drone to carry a wide range of curated medical and survival payloads.
