Avoid costly downtime events

…with aerial network inspections

Respond to outages and conduct planned inspections 3x faster

Get high-resolution cameras within arms-length of electrical equipment with much less danger and effort than with bucket truck crews. Just a few hours of training can get inspectors flying with Skydio.

Our ground-breaking AI-driven navigation system makes it easy to avoid obstacles as you fly, even in high EMI environments, as our drones don't rely on GPS. You'll capture better quality data from any insulator, transformer, or line far faster than manual crews.
