Support Mission Success With Revolutionary Software Capabilities

Fly in Front of the Pack With Skydio Scout

Move confidently with dynamic autonomous overwatch.

With Scout, the drone will fly at a set distance from the Skydio Enterprise Controller or Skydio Beacon, remaining locked on without the operator having to manually control the drone.

Skydio Scout enables operators to be heads up more often rather than heads down focused on flying the drone.

Enhance Team Awareness With ATAK

Give teammates and decision-makers key information to enhance real-time awareness with ATAK.

Connect to a TAK network with the Skydio Enterprise Controller, giving teammates access to the drone’s live video feed, location, and telemetry data.

The integration allows drone information to be unified into a larger tactical picture and merged with other mission data displayed in ATAK.

Fully Document Scenes Autonomously With Skydio 3D Scan

Adaptive scanning for fast, reliable photogrammetry capture.

Skydio 3D Scan automates the data capture process needed to generate 3D models and maps with comprehensive coverage and ultra-high resolution.

Reduce cognitive overload and risk to force, decrease capture time in high-risk environments, increase accuracy, and minimize pilot training with this first-of-its-kind adaptive scanning software.

Skydio Was Selected As the Sole Platform for the U.S. Army’s Short Range Reconnaissance Program

“The selection of the U.S. Army’s short range reconnaissance provider for tranche 1 is a significant milestone for the Army, our strategic partners and the domestic industrial base. The future for our Soldiers is now,”

Col. Joseph Anderson

Project Manager for Unmanned Aircraft Systems (U.S. Army)
