Two years ago, the French Company DIODON has unveiled the DIODON SP20 which is also an inflatable drone. It is the perfect tool for missions in harsh environments. Thanks to its inflatable structure, both DIODON drones are robust, amphibious and compact.

The DIODON SP20 is a quadcopter drone which has a weight of 1.6 kg and a payload of 220gr. DIODON Drone Technology offers a broad range of payloads to answer your operational needs that include CCD camera or thermal sensor.

The DIODON drones can be deployed and operated by a single operator in any situation thanks to the robust and easy-to-use GCS (Ground Control Station).

The DIODON done has been conceived in order to be easily repaired to ensure on-the-field continuous availability. Most of the maintenance operations can be done directly by the operator without specific tools.

The MP40 is also a quadcopter and is bigger than the SP-20, it measures 300 x 300 x 150mm folded and has a flying time of 30 min. It can fly at a maximum speed of 60 km/h with a maximum range of 2 km.
