Skydio X10 is the first drone ever to integrate a FLIR Boson+ sensor, delivering the highest quality thermal imaging. Capable of resolutions of 640 x 512 px and offering increased sensitivity down to <=30 mK, the X10 delivers more accurate radiometric readings, anytime, any place.

Bring the sharpest details
to every decision.

Off-the-shelf components couldn’t deliver the image quality our customers deserve. So, we engineered our own lenses. Achieve unrivaled resolution and superior focus with lenses you won’t find anywhere else.
