Adam Bry
CEO @ Skydio

Adam Bry is co-founder and CEO at Skydio, the leading US drone company, and the world leader in autonomous flight. He has two decades of experience with small UAS, starting as a national champion R/C airplane aerobatics pilot. As a grad student at MIT, he did award winning research that pioneered autonomous flight for drones, transferring much of what he learned as an R/C pilot into software that enables drones to fly themselves. After graduating from MIT, Adam co-founded Google’s Project Wing. He has co-authored numerous technical papers and patents, and was also recognized on MIT’s TR35 list for young innovators. He currently serves on the FAA’s Drone Advisory Committee.

TRANSCRIPT

Picture a world where intelligent drones autonomously inspect every piece of infrastructure, including warehouses, cell towers, power plants, bridges and more.

Drones become indispensable at every worksite and fundamentally change their operations, reducing safety risks and costs. Problems are identified quickly without arduous and dangerous inspections. And they’re tracked automatically, so issues get resolved before costs add up.

This new way of working, where drones autonomously operate from anywhere, creates a safer, more efficient world.

Skydio is working tirelessly to make this new world a reality. And we’re excited to share how far we’ve come with Skydio Dock and Remote Operations.

Watch our exclusive event, Dock Day, as we share what we've been creating. Get firsthand perspectives on how we're solving some of the toughest challenges in AI with Skydio Dock and Remote Ops solutions.

Dock Day at a Glance:

  • Our CEO Adam Bry gives an update on our vision and progress in reaching it
  • Get a close look at the Skydio Dock and Skydio Remote Ops platform
  • Hear conversations from early customers and see the real-world performance of Dock operations at current sites
  • Hear from our regulatory leaders on how we make flying drones from a dock possible today
  • Watch a live Q & A with our CEO, Adam, and other Skydio leaders
