Remote Substation Inspection Demonstration

Watch an autonomous drone launch from a dock and inspect a demo substation. Remote assets, aging infrastructure, limited resources, natural disasters, and budget constraints can complicate asset inspection. If you had the ability to inspect any asset at any time, from a web browser anywhere in the world, how would your operations change?

Small, smart and survivable: Engineering organic ISR for the modern battlefield

Today, the world is beginning to recognize the value of small Uncrewed Aerial Systems (UAS) for defense, akin to the cell phone revolution. The conflict in Ukraine has highlighted the potential of drones, setting the stage for a paradigm shift in modern warfare strategies, fueled by sUAS. Innovations in drone technology are poised to transform the battlefield as we know it. These advancements underscore the critical role of technology in shaping future defense strategies, offering an unmatched advantage in complex and rapidly evolving operational theaters. Drones are not only enhancing the capabilities of armed forces and security agencies but are also setting new standards for efficiency, safety, and tactical superiority on the global stage. This discussion unveils the remarkable features and significant impact of X10D, a drone that epitomizes the fusion of AI-driven autonomy, superior thermal imaging, and sophisticated decision-making processes to provide the optimal solution for on demand organic ISR. Using our commitment to reliability and trust in our products, we’ll discuss our rigorous software development and flight testing regimen, a process honed through over 10 years and three generations of UAS development. We’ll spotlight X10D’s trajectory over the coming months, with a particular focus on enhancing electronic warfare resilience (EWR) and survivability.  Key Takeaways -Revolutionary defense capabilities - unprecedented AI autonomy and thermal imaging that significantly enhances military strategy and efficiency Commitment to reliability and innovation - testing and feedback-informed S/W development underscores our commitment to creating cutting-edge drones -Focus on survivability and adaptability - focused on resilience, advanced return-to-home, 3rd party payload compatibility and a sneak peek at our upcoming innovative drone technology solutions. -Setting the stage for future advancements - exploring uncrewed systems’ potential to redefine efficiency, safety, and tactical global dominance This deep dive is designed to ignite curiosity and foster further inquiry, setting the stage for the next wave of advancements in military and security operations. Join us as we explore how the integration of cutting-edge uncrewed systems like Skydio X10D is not just enhancing operational readiness but also broadening the horizons of strategic capabilities, setting new benchmarks for efficiency, safety, and tactical dominance on a global scale.

In the face of an unexpected event, quickly understanding the condition of assets is a critical factor to restore power and minimize forced outages — helping avoid millions of dollars in labor, materials, and CMI, and lowering risk for your personnel and your grid. Watch how American Electric Power Station Technical Services uses drones to optimize their response to a static line failure, quickly capturing information to prevent another failure before it started. When every minute counts, AEP relies on autonomous drones to conduct critical inspections. Skydio is proud to work with AEP as they move toward condition based maintenance and deliver safe, reliable, affordable power to their customers.

PG&E operates one of the largest and most advanced drone-based equipment inspection programs in the world and recently became the first utility in California to begin conducting fully remote drone operations for electric system inspections. PG&E is working in collaboration with San Mateo-based Skydio to integrate its Dock technology at 12 electric substations to augment current inspection programs and manual drone operations. The benefit for customers is significant. The new drone capability automates data capture in the field, providing a triple advantage of increased system, operator, and community safety; reduced time and resources; and cost savings.

ARROW will enable remote communities to conduct BVLOS missions using UAS, allowing them to collect critical data for a shared statewide GIS. The data will be used in response to natural and man-made disasters affecting critical infrastructure in historically underserved communities. This is particularly important in Alaska, where many remote communities are vulnerable to natural disasters like earthquakes, wildfires, floods, and extreme weather events.
