Skyward-Parrot Partnership Brings Integration and Coaching for the ANAFI USA – Drones Information
Skyward, a Verizon company, and Parrot, the leading European drone group, have announced their partnership to supply Parrot ANAFI drones along with Skyward drone program management, flight log synchronization and training for US companies. In particular, the new ANAFI USA drone, one of only five drones approved by the Department of Defense for government use, speaks to a widespread need by US corporations and public bodies for a safe, high-end drone to operate domestically will be produced. The ANAFI USA and training package sold by Skyward provides companies with a single point of contact for building and scaling a drone program with aircraft, policies and procedures, training and automatic flight log synchronization with the software platform to manage everything.
“ANAFI USA is designed to meet the needs of the most demanding professional users while providing data security and privacy for businesses,” said Henri Seydoux, Founder and CEO of Parrot. “Combined with Skywards Enterprise drone solutions for training and integrated software platforms, professional users now have access to one of the most comprehensive suites of hardware, software and services.”
In addition to the security benefits, Parrots ANAFI USA offers the industry’s first 32x zoom, 4K HDR video and thermal imaging capabilities. It’s ultra-portable, weatherproof and ready to go in 55 seconds.
“Now companies can maximize their investment in ANAFI USA by combining it with Skyward’s in-person and online operator training and robust management platform,” said Mariah Scott, president of Skyward, a Verizon company. “This is just the beginning of a strong partnership with Parrot. Look for ongoing feature integration and connectivity offerings as we move the industry forward together. “
Skyward users can automatically log flights through the Parrot FreeFlight 6 pilot application for the ANAFI, ANAFI Thermal and ANAFI USA drones. More integration features will be available soon to maximize the value of both platforms.
