“EagleView is excited to partner with Skydio to deliver breakthrough innovation for residential roof inspection that puts autonomous drone technology and unparalleled image quality to work for our customers,” said Chris Jurasek, CEO of EagleView. “EagleView’s images are already 16 times clearer than those of satellites, and with Skydio’s drones you’ll be able to not only spot a dime on the roof but see the face of Franklin D. Roosevelt stamped on it. This partnership allows customers to confidently make decisions while lowering costs.”

“We are excited to partner with EagleView to revolutionize the residential roof inspection market through the power of autonomous drones and AI,” said Adam Bry, CEO of Skydio.  “Together with EagleView, we provide insurance carriers, claims adjusters, construction companies, and government bodies with a first-of-its-kind integrated solution that automates the entire inspection process. Thanks to the unique flight autonomy capabilities of Skydio drones, we are able to enhance virtual property inspections, delivering exceptional accuracy, consistency, and image quality.”
