Corey Hitchcock
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

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?

Watch the demo + Q&A session to see an autonomous drone inspect a substation in real-time within our docked drone warehouse in San Francisco, CA.

With Skydio Remote Ops, you: -Have the ability to conduct routine or event-based inspection from a web browser -Significantly lower inspection costs -Increase worker safety
