Kelluu produces small, autopilot airships that can stay in the air (almost) permanently. Kelluu airships are made from the most advanced materials on the market and can be loaded with three kilograms of any modern sensors. Then they continuously move or float in place, collect data and transfer it wherever needed. Kelluu provides the continuous aerial inspection or surveillance with their airships as a service.
