The Skeyetech system has been developed by Azur Drones to provide the security companies with an automated drone system dedicated to the surveillance of sensible sites. This solution is composed of a connected base (for the recharge and the shelter of the drone), a highly automated drone, and the necessary plug-ins with the Video Management Systems operated on the market of Security. This system is today operated in France by several customers without any remote pilot. To get the specific authorization by the French DGAC, Azur Drones has performed a risk analysis directly inspired by the SORA method. This process will be described during the Azur Drones presentation.
