Visionary cameras to get the job done.

Packing more megapixels and better optics than any drone its size, Skydio X10D boasts modular, high-resolution visual and radiometric thermal cameras. So you can gain decision-making advantage with precise, accurate information.

skydio x10d lens/sensors

Skydio X10D sensor packages supercharge your sensing capability, enabling you to capture mission-relevant data in high-definition. Because life or death decisions depend on information that is timely, relevant, and accurate.

The Skydio X10D is the first small UAS ever to integrate a FLIR Boson+ sensor, achieving the category’s highest thermal imaging quality. Capable of resolutions of 640x512 and offering increased sensitivity down to <=30 mK, the X10D promises more accurate radiometric readings, anytime, any place.

Bring precise and timely details to every tactical decision.

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