Our founders met as grad students at MIT in 2009 where they helped pioneer autonomous drone technology. After MIT they helped start Google’s Project Wing. Skydio was founded in 2014 and in 2018 we launched R1 which was widely regarded as a breakthrough in autonomous drones for consumers and as a platform for commercial development.
We take our responsibility as America’s leading drone manufacturer seriously. We design, assemble, and support our products in the U.S. We develop our software in-house and source our processors from U.S. companies. That enables us to provide a high level of supply chain security and serve as a trusted partner to government customers.
The result is a homegrown aircraft that reflects the best of American innovation, trustworthiness, and craftsmanship.
