SAN MATEO, Calif. — Skydio, a U.S. drone manufacturer, will demo its newest offering, Skydio Remote Flight Deck, at IACP 2023 from Oct. 14-17 in San Diego, California. The Flight Deck enables remote flight for Skydio X10 drones from anywhere through access to a browser with 5G connection.
With Skydio Remote Flight Deck, remote pilots can initiate Skydio X10 drone flights ready for launch by local agencies or take control of missions in progress from anywhere via web browser. According to Skydio, missions flown by Remote Flight Deck have a near-infinite range with the Skydio X10 drone’s 5G-connected network.
Key Remote Flight Deck features:
Remote pilots can initiate and control fights using any connected computer with a web browser.
Remote Flight Deck, combined with the Autonomy Engine, allows pilots to execute missions from hundreds or thousands of miles away.
- Drone control can be easily transitioned from ground to remote pilots.
- There is enhanced incident response with Patrol-Led Drone as First Responder (DFR). For example, in a Patrol-Led DFR scenario, an officer responds to a scene, places a drone in a location ready for launch and requests control to be taken from a remote pilot. While the officer handles the situation on the ground, the remote pilot provides updates for increased situational awareness and greater safety for the on-scene responders.
- Extended coverage for search and rescue is possible because remote pilots can extend the search area, which increases the speed and likelihood of locating missing persons.
