How Skydio Drones are Used For Inspecting Power Equipment

Power Generation Maintenance

Fly up close to inspect and document power generating equipment and oil and gas facilities safely with the best 360° obstacle avoidance and autonomous data capture drone on the market.

Energy Transmission & Delivery

Fly unaffected in highly energized, obstacle rich, and GPS denied environments to inspect transmission, substation, and distribution networks easily with Skydio drones powered by Skydio Autonomy Enterprise.

Learn the benefits of using autonomous navigation and capture drones for inspecting power generating facilities and transmission infrastructure

Current Inspection Methods are Inefficient and Dangerous

Risky Human Inspections

Tower climbs, bucket trucks, and other human-based inspection methods are expensive, time-consuming, and dangerous.

Manual Drone Inspections

Manual drones have untrustworthy obstacle avoidance and fail to work in energiezed and GPS-denied environments requiring many hours of pilot training to avoid crashes.

Skydio Drones Improve Utility Inspection

Operate with Utmost Safety

Fly with confidence in the most challenging utility environments thanks to Skydio Autonomy Enterprise.

  • Computer vision navigation allows you to fly reliably around energized environments. Skydio drones don’t rely on magnetometers and offer robust operation in strong electric and magnetic fields.
  • 360° collision avoidance helps you inspect around “noisy” utilities environments surrounded by oil and gas equipment, powerlines, wires and vegetation.

Inspect Fast and Efficiently

Enable individual pilots to do more inspections in less time.

  • Autonomous capture using Skydio 3D Scan enables you to automate the inspection process without prior knowledge of the site, reducing inspection times by up to 90%.
  • Ease of use, thanks to unparalleled autonomy, reduces the training burden on UAS teams and makes their programs viable and scalable.

Capture High Quality Data

Intelligent AI-assisted flight allowed inspectors to capture data at their precise specifications.

  • Close proximity obstacle avoidance allows the drone to fly safely and closely to the inspection target.
  • Adaptive capture using Skydio 3D Scan helps you capture comprehensive data with resolution as low as 0.65 mm/pixel.
  • Dual capture available with Skydio X2 allows you capture images in both color and thermal palettes.
