Ten years in the making.

Our founders met as grad students at MIT in 2009 where they pioneered autonomous drone technology. After MIT they helped start Google’s drone delivery program, Project Wing. Skydio was founded in 2014, and in 2018 we launched R1 which was widely regarded as a breakthrough in autonomous drones for consumers and as a platform for commercial development.

Skydio 2 is the result of over a decade of R&D by world experts in drones, AI, and computer vision. Its design is informed by everything we learned developing, shipping, and servicing R1, and all the feedback we’ve gotten from our first customers. Our goal as a company is very simple: make drones useful for people by making them smart. Skydio 2 is a major step forward for us, and we want it to be a major step forward for the industry. We think you’ll love it, and we can’t wait to serve you as a customer.
