Skydio X2D turns every operator into an expert pilot

Skydio is a company that creates advanced small Unmanned Aerial Systems (sUAS) for consumers, enterprises, defense agencies, and law enforcement agencies. Their aircraft contain built-in artificial intelligence for unmatched obstacle avoidance and breakthrough autonomous workflows. The products are easy to use, can be trusted and a program can be built around.

Drones have made significant strides in the field of surveillance and security. The Skydio X2D Color/Thermal drone is a prime example of cutting-edge technology that combines the power of visual and thermal imaging to provide an unparalleled aerial surveillance solution.

The Skydio X2D fits the needs of defense and federal agencies during their missions. X2D is powered by Skydio Autonomy Enterprise, an AI-driven autonomous flight engine that enables unparalleled 360° obstacle avoidance, autonomous tracking, GPS-denied navigation, and complete workflow automation. The unmatched autonomy turns every operator into an expert pilot. The wireless range goes up to 6.2 mi/10 km and its cybersecurity is AES-256 wireless encrypted. After a deploying time of only 75 seconds, you have a flight time of 35 minutes with a maximum flight speed of 25 mph (40 km/h).

X2D Color and X2D Color/Thermal

X2D is designed with a ruggedized, foldable airframe, GPS-based night flight, strobing lights in visible and IR wavelength, and a single sensor payload with a 12MP/4K60P HDR color camera with a wide angle lens optimized for close capture. With the controller, you have a maximum range of up to 10 km and a video feed of 720p at 30 fps.

X2D Color/Thermal is also designed with a ruggedized, foldable airframe, GPS-based night flight, and strobing lights in visible and IR wavelengths, but differs in its camera. It has a dual sensor payload with a 12MP color camera and FLIR® THERMAL 320×256 thermal sensor that enables you to zoom 8 times.

The standout feature of the Skydio X2D Color/Thermal drone is its dual imaging system, which combines a color camera and a thermal camera. This unique combination allows users to capture detailed visual imagery along with thermal data simultaneously. The color camera provides high-resolution visuals, enabling precise identification of objects, while the thermal camera detects heat signatures, making it ideal for applications such as search and rescue operations, infrastructure inspections, and public safety initiatives.


Recently Skydio offers the Skydio X2D with new multiband technology and capabilities – the Skydio X2D Multiband. Developed in collaboration with a number of Skydio’s domestic and international defense customers to enhance performance and versatility across various communication systems. With the ability to operate on multiple frequencies, it is ideal to use globally for the most critical operations in contested environments for government aerial intelligence, reconnaissance and situational awareness, emergency services, and search and rescue operations. By using different frequency bands, the X2D can overcome limitations such as interference, attenuation, or bandwidth constraints in a single frequency band.

Optional add-ons

Skydio 3D Scan
With the 3D Scan add-on, you get the possibility of adaptive scanning to automate the image capture process to document complex structures and generate 3D models with comprehensive coverage and ultra-high resolution. Perform higher quality inspections and documentation faster and with minimal pilot training.

Skydio Scout

Skydio Scout is a dedicated skill which makes it easier to fly around and keep up with a tracked GPS position. Fly at a set distance and height from either the Skydio Enterprise Controller or the Skydio Beacon while on the move — all without having to manually operate the drone. Skydio’s unmatched obstacle avoidance makes for worry free flying while maintaining a set distance from the GPS location and camera direction, even without line of sight.
