Autonomous drones are helping utilities, engineering firms, and government agencies generate detailed inspections of hard-to-reach assets with higher precision, less pilot training requirements, and less ground risk than the incumbent manual solutions commonly used in the past.
Drones have become valuable tools for giving police officers airborne eyes on active scenes, such as responding to emergencies, conducting search and rescue missions, and for collecting evidence from privileged vantage points.
Small UAS have become an irreplaceable tool to gather Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance for the military.
Drones have quickly become crucial tools for troops on the ground to collect organic unit-level ISR, but legacy drones have historically been difficult to fly and easy to crash, reducing their effectiveness as an asset to troops on the ground.
With drones becoming increasingly automated, the level of involvement of humans in command has also been sufficiently reduced, so much so that they become Remote Operators instead of Remote Pilots.
Drones have become valuable situational awareness tools for first responders completing emergency response, search and rescue, and a host of other missions.
Drone pilots working on construction sites across the country are starting to discover the power of autonomy, finding that it helps them complete a broader range of tasks more efficiently and safely than traditional manual drones.
Skydio recently announced the general availability of Skydio Autonomy Enterprise Foundation (AEF), a broad set of advanced AI-pilot assistance capabilities for enterprise and public sector operators.
This Skydio Original Series tells the story of a team of fictional warfighters as they face five different missions, starting with the response to an explosion in an urban setting, and ending with a night raid on the responsible bomb-maker.
