Utility Customers Among Early Adopters for Integrated API Driven Solution for Fleet and Compliance Management

Aloft Technologies and Skydio, the leading U.S. drone manufacturer and world leader in autonomous flight, today announced the immediate availability of integrations between Aloft Air Control for Enterprise and Skydio Cloud, bringing customers a connected and secure data stream of flight logs, telemetry, asset tracking, reporting and more. This is an exciting new capability that customers have been asking for as it combines secure autonomous Skydio aircraft with the preflight and post-flight Aloft compliance solutions.

As part of making this combined solution possible, it became clear that Skydio and Aloft share many of the same customers, particularly in the utility industry. This customer set has a high degree of need for security throughout their workflows given how important these services are to millions of customers and businesses in the communities they serve.

“We’ve seen tremendous demand for a Skydio and Aloft integration from our customers, especially those in the utility industry. We’re excited to be working with Aloft to offer a robust integration that makes fleet management of Skydio drones within Aloft simple and easy.”

said Mike Ross, Sr. Director of Product Management, Skydio.

Customers with strong needs for safety and security in the utilities industry are among the many early adopters looking to take advantage of the new offering.

“Power lines are critical infrastructure so inspection with drones has to be done with safety and security at the core of every mission we fly. The combined autonomy and security of Skydio drones with the security and compliance features that Aloft brings will help our drone program become even more secure and reinforce our safety posture,” said Mike Spengler, UAS Program Manager, Idaho Power Company
