Our drone specialists:
The AIRXBIG team

The idea behind Airxbig

At Airxbig, we believe that digitally supported autonomous mobility can help society live more freely and positively. We offer a platform for professional drone projects that allows us to safely plan and execute flights with a wide range of hardware and software requirements. This results in an "all-in-one platform" for the use of drones "as-a-service" for our customers with an included traffic management system and the required data protection: climate-neutral, resource- and cost-saving.

But that is by far not all. Our vision is to be the first company worldwide to offer the possibility of integrating an existing asset - the AXB fleet of drones - by means of a token and thus to participate directly in the company's success. In this way, Airxbig's stakeholders will be integrated into the value chain and will not only benefit from our services but also from Airxbig's success.

Right now we are on the verge of the autonomous drone-flight. Our approach “drones as a service” is our share for a climate neutral and cost-efficient use of resources in the fields of agriculture, security and logistics.

Our Story

The predecessor organisation of today's Airxbig was founded in 2019 with the idea of protecting companies from industrial espionage and bringing the issue of social engineering more to the forefront in this context and working to educate. Then came Covid-19 and the world stood still. Christian Preiml, however, saw the opportunity in the crisis and recognised the need and the future of drone technology. In search of the right team, he met Christian Gedeon and Airxbig slowly took shape in his mind. Thanks to excellent contacts with Austrian blue light organisations, government-related companies and, last but not least, the Austrian Armed Forces, points of contact for projects were soon found and thus the first step towards founding the company was taken. In January 2022, the company was established in Mattersburg with the participation of the Burgenland Business Agency. Specialists from the pool of experts are brought in around the core team depending on the project tasks. With this flexible system, optimal order fulfilment for the customer can be guaranteed.
