Dirisolar is an innovative airship project based around two innovations including an exclusive to the start-up. The aggregation of proven technologies in other areas has made it possible to design an innovative airship with respect to existing or pre-existing airship.

The technologies used in the Dirisolar project (tubular structure, tendons, tissues and helium envelope) are all widely proven innovations. They are used for applications in other sectors than aeronautics.
