Skydio X2D: AI-powered Autonomous Drone for Organic, Unit-level ISR

Small UAS have become an irreplaceable tool to gather Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance for the military. However, conventional fixed-wing drones fall short in several areas - long assembly time, lack of portability, and operating complexity among others.

Skydio X2D pairs breakthrough flight autonomy with a ruggedized, portable airframe to make it the ultimate solution for organic, unit-level ISR missions. Designed and manufactured in the USA, X2D delivers an NDAA compliant solution, selected as a trusted drone platform for the Federal Government as part of DIU’s Blue sUAS Program.
