Skydio and Arris Revolutionize Drone Design and Manufacturing

January 04 (2021

Skydio, a leading U.S. drone manufacturer and world leader in autonomous flight technology, and Arris, a leader in advanced manufacturing of high-performance products, have redefined airframe design leveraging Additive Molding, Arris’s breakthrough carbon fiber manufacturing technology. Starting with the new Skydio X2 drone, enterprise, public sector and defense customers will benefit from lighter, longer-range, and more robust aircraft structures at scale. The collaboration has resulted in the first-of-its-kind production use of Arris’s technology in the UAV (unmanned aerial vehicle) industry, further extending Skydio’s technology leadership and enabling game-changing advantages:

• Advanced airframe design with component consolidation allowing Skydio to replace a 17 part assembly with a single, multi-functional structure
• Strength and stiffness of titanium at a fraction of the weight, enabling the Skydio X2 to increase range, and speed
• Optimized carbon and glass fiber layout based on functional requirements of individual regions of the airframe
• Scalable US-based manufacturing and innovation to bring peak aerospace performance at lower cost
