Military Operations in Urban Terrain: Village

The value of a drone in a tactical environment increases by orders of magnitude when it is enhanced with cutting-edge, AI-powered autonomy, opening up even more applications that can empower the operator, decrease cognitive load, support the mission, and even save lives. One example of an advanced use case is the autonomous capture of digital twins in high-risk areas.

Military operations often take place in high-risk or even contested environments, domestically or overseas in combat theater. This Digital twin would be invaluable in situations such as on-site key leader engagements (KLEs), training & communication, post-mission documentation, and infrastructure & reconstruction.

This model’s photos were taken with 3D Scan on a Skydio 2, and the reconstruction was performed using Bentley ContextCapture.

This model was captured autonomously by Skydio 3D Scan. 3D Scan is a first-of-its-kind adaptive scanning software built on top of Skydio Autonomy. It allows the drone to automate data capture for generating 3D models with comprehensive coverage and ultra-high resolution, so that crews can perform higher quality scans in less time and with minimal pilot training.
