Skydio X10 Tour | Louisiana Roadshow | Baton Rouge
# Roadshow

Skydio invites you to a series of fly days across the State of Mississippi and Louisiana. These events are hosted by Skydio to introduce state and local agencies to new UAS technology.

Participants from State Agencies, Public Safety, Local Governments, Education and other invited stakeholders across Louisiana and Mississippi will witness societal and economic benefits of UAS at each local event. You are invited to attend these demonstrations in Baton Rouge (8/28), New Orleans (8/29), Biloxi (8/30), and Jackson (8/31)

Participants will have opportunity to get hands-on flying experience and learn how innovative domestic technology like UAS are used to improve operations through efficiency, lower costs, enhanced safety, and creation of new capabilities. 

Never flown a drone before? We prefer that, and now’s your chance!

Come fly with us and learn how drones:

  1. Support first responders and schools and as a force multiplier by gaining immediate situational awareness in any high risk, emergency situation. 
  2. Capture and reconstruct critical incidents, like crash scenes or natural disasters, for emergency response and post event reporting. 
  3. Help DOT Teams quickly inspect statewide infrastructure assets such as bridges, radio towers, stockpiles, roadways, railway, culverts, and more. 
  4. Provide DNR and Fish and Wildlife Teams with aerial intelligence at a moments notice, and how autonomous mapping missions can be utilized for planning and analysis. 

You’ll also get to experience Skydio’s new technology, Dock and Remote operations. See first-hand how state and local operators use this new platform to automate perimeter patrol, streamline inspection and awareness in remote environments, and deploy a drone as a first response.

Enjoy complimentary refreshments and food while having fun flying!

“We had folks with zero flight experience up inside bridge decks within a second flight.” -Ryan Marlow, UAS Program Manager, Alaska Department of Transportation

“Drones are playing a significant role assisting with police work while keeping our officers and the public safe. Just this month, we've seen drone deployments find an assault victim and thwart burglary suspects.” -Oklahoma City Police Department
