Skeyetech solution now integrates with Microsoft Azure through Azure IoT Hub to use the power of data for autonomous drone operations.  Thanks to Azure, our Skeyetech systems become intelligent and connected IoT devices. After each mission, flight telemetry is automatically uploaded and analysed in Azure to allow for operational reports and vehicle predictive maintenance. Cloud-based fleet management by Azur Drones provides responsive and scalable customer support, for the growing number of locations around the world where we operate. Remote software updates are also made available to our customers, allowing an efficient and secure loop between customer additional needs and our R&D teams.
