Osprey, the new survey-grade, portable enterprise drone from American producer Skyfish will be released at Xponential 2024

The drone features flight times of up to 60 minutes, a radio range of 3 to 5 miles, collision avoidance, automated in-flight geotagging of frame synchronous data, and RTK for cm grade location accuracy. At ~14 lbs all up weight, Osprey comfortably fits into a backpack

Purpose built for infrastructure inspection and Intelligence Surveillance & Reconnaissance (ISR), Osprey supports leading, compact third-party sensors such as the new Sony LR1 61-megapixel camera for inspection and photogrammetry and NextVision’s Raptor for ISR. 

For detailed infrastructure inspection, Skyfish creates precise 3D models, or digital twins, which the company state engineers can trust. 

Applications extend to the inspection, precise measurement, and analysis of infrastructure including cellular towers, bridges, roadways, wind turbines, airports, power lines, specialized land use management and more. 

Skyfish assert that its 3D/digital-twin models are crystal clear, measurable, and accurate to within 1/32 of an inch. For law enforcement and defense applications, Osprey supports the NextVision Raptor EO/IR sensor with incredible X80 EO zoom and significant IR range.

Osprey is made in the USA, NDAA compliant, Green UAS in process and Army DEVCOM certified Airworthiness Level 3.

Dr. Orest Pilskalns, CEO of Skyfish, commented; “To give customers exceptional performance, Osprey was designed to be lightweight, fly up to an hour, record an exact location, and support best-in-class industry sensors for either infrastructure inspection, or ISR.”
