Utility Solutions Specialist @ Skydio

Corey joined Skydio as a utility solutions specialist in early 2023. Prior to Skydio, Corey led UAS Program Development and Operations with Southern Co. Aerial Services. Corey developed methods for operating drones across the nuclear, gas, and power verticals, notably flying one of the first UAS inspections on an operating nuclear reactor. At Skydio, he is developing dock based drone use cases for autonomous inspections as well as focused routine, event based, and security inspections for substations. These dock based inspections are focused on reducing the duration and frequency of outages, allowing for predictive based maintenance plans to be implemented.

SUMMARY

In this webinar, DroneLife Editor Miriam McNabb, joins experts from The New York Power Authority (NYPA), ANRA Technologies, and leading drone manufacturer Skydio to discuss how the utility is integrating drones and advanced software solutions to inspect and monitor power generation, transmission, and distribution infrastructure.

This webinar explores how integrated drone and software technology can streamline workflow efficiency, minimize risks for front-line workers, and facilitate safe operations. NYPA shares how they can create a shared situational awareness across its enterprise, leading to faster response times, improved workflows for everyday operations and maintenance projects, and emergency response activities during weather events and other critical situations.
