Australian company EPE has partnered with U.S. drone manufacturer Skydio to bring its autonomous platform to Australian and New Zealand Defence customers.
EPE has announced its partnership with Skydio, a leading U.S. drone manufacturer and world leader in autonomous flight, to offer its autonomous Skydio X2D defence drone to customers in Australia and New Zealand.
"Our missions align, EPE's focus is to protect our soldiers and first responders through innovative solutions," said Warwick Penrose, owner of EPE.
EPE is providing leading technologies into Defence’s Experimentation Teams in the area of Human Machine Teaming and the Skydio X2D meets current reconnaissance and surveillance requirements to counter emerging threats.
In February 2022, the Skydio X2D system was selected for the U.S. Army’s Short Range Reconnaissance (SRR) Program of Record. Leveraging Skydio Autonomy, the world’s leading AI-driven flight autonomy software, the Skydio X2D is the ultimate solution for military customers to perform reconnaissance, search and rescue, and security patrol missions.
Designed, assembled, and supported in the USA, it complies with rigorous supply chain security requirements and offers superior cybersecurity protection.
