  • July 01 2021Read Skydio’s Enterprise Drone Inspection eBook

    Skydio drones are all about working smarter, not harder, through AI-powered autonomous flight. Our new Enterprise Drone Inspection EBook, which we will release over the course of nine volumes over the coming months, is designed to help program managers navigate this expansive new set of options.

  • June 22 2021Sundt switches from DJI to Skydio to enable a wider range of life-saving drone missions

    Sundt uses Skydio 3D Scan to inspect high-pressure, high-temperature systems where it would be dangerous to send a human. With 3D Scan, they can inspect these structures faster and more safely than ever.

  • June 02 2021U.S. Autonomous Drone Maker Skydio Announces the General Availability of Skydio 3D Scan and Partners with Photogrammetry Leader Bentley Systems

    Skydio, the leading U.S. drone manufacturer and world leader in autonomous flight technology, today announced the general availability of its adaptive scanning software, Skydio 3D Scan.

  • June 02 2021Introducing Skydio 3D Scan™: The Era of Autonomous Drone Inspection is Here

    Today we are celebrating the release of Skydio 3D Scan™, our revolutionary adaptive scanning software that enables Skydio drones to automate the data capture process needed to document complex structures and generate 3D models with comprehensive coverage and ultra-high resolution.

  • May 25 20213D Scan Example - Mock Car Crash

    Skydio 3D Scan makes the scene documentation process easy with adaptive mapping algorithms that pilot the drone to make a structure-specific 3D scanning path, and follow it with full obstacle avoidance engaged.

  • May 13 20213D Scan Example - Lunar Lander

    Our latest 3D Scan sneak peek showcases the Lunar Lander, a replica of the spacecraft that put humans onto the surface of the moon. This replica is located at the U.S. Space & Rocket Center, which will be hosting Skydio's largest virtual event ever on June 2nd! Read the full blog to learn more about 3D Scan's incredible potential.

  • April 06 2021Skydio 3D Scan Example - Sepulveda Dam

    Check out our newest 3D model, the Sepulveda Dam in Los Angeles, CA. This metal and concrete structure would be tough to inspect with a manual drone due to GPS and magnetometer interference, but Skydio 3D Scan makes it easy. This scan demonstrates 3D Scan's potential to help pilots perform faster, better, and more accurate inspections of all types of infrastructure.

  • March 23 2021Skydio 3D Scan Example - Mock Helicopter Crash Site

    Check out our newest 3D model, a mock helicopter crash site in Playas, NM. These crash sites are filled with obstacles that would be tough to inspect with a manual drone, from metallic debris to overhung I-Beams. The future of aircraft and incident inspection is here - with 3D scan, first responders can gather detailed documentation of complex sites in a fraction of the time.

  • March 09 2021Skydio 3D Scan Example - Corsair Jet

    Check out this amazing 3D model generated with Skydio 3D Scan. Jets are notoriously difficult to inspect by drone, with overhung, metallic, and reflective surfaces that make them hard to navigate manual drones near. Skydio Autonomy changes everything - now inspectors can get better data than ever before, with a fraction of the time and effort.
