Parrot, Verizon, and Skyward have partnered on an off-the-shelf drone that will enable real-time data transfer, remote deployment, and beyond-visual-line-of-sight flight operations. The Parrot ANAFI Ai drone uses the Verizon 4G LTE network and is integrated with Skyward software.

Verizon 4G LTE connectivity is provided exclusively to Skyward subscribers at no additional cost. The Skyward Connected Drone Solution gives enterprises one complete experience for planning, flying, data transfer, and processing data.

The Parrot ANAFI Ai compact drone is open to developers, with a full open-source app, autonomous 1 click photogrammetry, and “new levels” of cybersecurity. The drone features an omni-directional obstacle avoidance system, 48 MP imaging accuracy, 4K 60fps smooth videos, and up to 32 minutes of flight time in an airframe that weighs less than 2 pounds.
