Nimbus develops and produces unmanned aircraft system based on an innovative and patented idea defined “metaplano”. It consists of a hybrid aircraft that combines static and aerodynamic lift.
Nimbus EOS is an innovative family of unmanned aircraft, combining the characteristics of a traditional airplane with the ones of a hang glider and a dirigible, lighter than air. Nimbus EOS represents a safe and superlative solution for critical situations. It is easy to pilot and can be transported wherever is needed.
It is extremely powerful and easy to use: it does not need a runway. With the use of helium combined with the innovative wing design, Nimbus EOS provides high stability and easy piloting. When not in operation, the Nimbus EOS may be stored using minimal space, and easily transported.
The Nimbus metaplanes are also sold by TATI in Tunisia.
