Dirigibileindoor is the first dedicated Italian startup utilising airship drones for indoor Out-of-home advertising. The idea came in 2016, when Andrea De Fazi, founder and CEO, saw an airship drone during a conference on this rising sector and was immediately fascinated by it. Yet, we wanted to take a different approach than our counterparts in this field. We deemed drones to be applicable not only to transports and video recording but also to the world of OOH advertising.
Andrea De Fazi, CEO and founder, holds the certificate of multicopter drone pilot, pilot and airship drone operator. In 2017 he became the first Examiner for the airship drone category placing himself at the top of the training for this category
Dirigible balloon drones are the newest kinds of drones on the market, yet their dimensions, structure, shape and levels of security can vary significantly between models. Generally, their main structure is a tapered envelope made from high-quality aeronautical-grade polyurethane, an extremely soft but incredibly tear-resistant material. Contained in the envelope is an inert, non-flammable, atoxic noble gas that is also lighter than air: helium. Dimensions for indoor airships can vary from 6.6ft to 23ft. The manoeuvering engines are only required to propel the airship, not to generate lift and are located just underneath the envelope.
Our greatly ambitious idea has to come with superior security standards. Nevertheless, airship drones are considerably safer than other drones for two main reasons. Most importantly, as it’s the helium to lift the balloon – not the engines – drones can maintain altitude also in the unlikely event of an engine failure. Furthermore, their envelope is soft and doesn’t contain any hidden sharp object. No other drone has these characteristics.
Investing in this unique technology allows facilities like stations, airports and shopping centres to offer their customers floating ads for the very first time! With the aim of not only improving their appearance and attract more customers, but also to substantially increase their advertising revenues.
