Autonomy Enterprise Foundation delivers new autonomy capabilities to respond to the needs of enterprise, public sector, and defense users within a wide range of use cases (inspection, mapping, situational awareness, emergency response, search and rescue, etc).

How much does AEF cost?

AEF is available as an add-on software package to a Skydio drone (Skydio 2 and X2 are supported). We aren’t publicly sharing the pricing at this time. A Skydio Sales Representative can help you order the software and discuss available options.
