autonomous dronesSkydio drones are powered by a cutting-edge autonomy engine that uses up to nine deep neural networks to create and update a 3D model of the surrounding environment at over one million data points per second.

This state-of-the-art artificial intelligence provides 360-degree awareness and obstacle avoidance, enabling maximum situational awareness and safe autonomous flight even in highly challenging and complex environments. With the flying taken care of, users can focus on the mission and gain actionable insights faster than ever before.

isr drones for situational awarenessSkydio drones equip tactical teams with on-demand Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (ISR) capabilities for the battlefield, allowing military users to gain a common operating picture for enhanced situational awareness and decision-making.

The rugged UAS can operate at any time of day or night, and fly undetected in contested airspace even at low altitudes and under GPS-denied conditions. Skydio systems are NDAA-compliant and Blue UAS-listed and are trusted by every brand of the U.S. Department of Defense, all FVEY countries and across NATO.
