The Smartest Portable Drone for Military and First Responders Just Got Smarter

Wednesday, September 28, 2022 | 7:00PM CET | 1:00PM EST | 10:00AM PST

Drones provide mission-critical intelligence and awareness to today’s military and first response teams, especially in complex, fast-paced environments where safety is on the line. How can software act as a force multiplier in these situations?

The Skydio X2 system – powered by artificial intelligence – is the most advanced organic, unit-level drone solution for military personnel and first responders to conduct reconnaissance, patrol, and incident response missions. AI-enabled obstacle avoidance and breakthrough autonomous workflows result in advanced situational awareness for the unit and reduced cognitive load on the operator.

With the latest software release from the Skydio team, the X2 system adds two new significant capabilities for navigating dynamic, complex environments.

Join our webinar to learn about these new features and be one of the first to see it in action. The webinar will feature subject matter experts with decades of combined real-world experience: retired Navy SEAL Chuck McGraw and former Border Patrol SUAS pilot Curtis Chalk. In this webinar, we’ll discuss:

  • Scout: a new AI skill for autonomous overwatch while in motion, even in a vehicle
  • ATAK (Android Team Awareness Kit) integration: empowering teams with multi-drone POV and orchestration
  • Customer use cases and value from these updates, and other developments from Skydio.
