Public Safety White Paper

Skydio Public Safety Drone White paper

Small UAS have become an irreplaceable tool for situational awareness, officer safety, and search & rescue. However, conventional manual drones fall short in several areas – complexity, training, reliability, security, and regulations.

For public safety agencies that are investing in drone technology, Skydio developed the 5 As framework that outlines five specific categories of capabilities/requirements to have a full end-state operation as commonly envisioned for safe, automated, and ubiquitous UAS deployment.
