“When you tie a foreign-made aircraft into your network or a cloud, you may inadvertently be giving your potential adversaries access to your network. That’s where our biggest concern is.

That’s why we must employ aircraft that are approved by the AFSOC. The Skydio X2 is one of those 20 aircraft that are on that list.”
