Mérignac, France, 20 April 2023 – AZUR DRONES, a major automatic (unmanned) drone player is extending its offer and opening up to new opportunities with the launch of SKEYETECH E2. Following the success of its SKEYETECH which is already deployed on some of the global industrial leaders’ sites (TotalEnergies, BASF, Orano, ArcleorMittal, etc.) and by prestigious government agencies such as Dubai Police or the Paris Fire Brigade, AZUR DRONES is now in position as a provider of global personnel, environment and asset protection.
SKEYETECH E2, a structuring innovation in a dynamic market
The result of unparalleled experience in the field of automatic drones (25,000 completed flights, 40,000 km covered) SKEYETECH E2 has the capacity to take on a payload of up to three systems specific to many use cases. An ultra-connected, 5G-operational system, it meets hitherto unknown aviation standards in this market.
SKEYETECH E2 also has a configurable charging time: fast charging for intensive use (20+ missions per day), or slower charging and maximised service life for less frequent use. Finally, for crisis management situations in which longer flight times are needed, it is now possible to hot swap SKEYETECH E2 batteries, thereby giving the drone increased flight times.
More than just a drone, SKEYETECH E2 is a multi-application platform capable of providing aerial data of all types (video, gas capture, photogrammetry data, etc.) processed accurately and repeatedly using artificial intelligence.
SKEYETECH E2 fulfils many needs expressed by different players on a same site and can thus be used by different departments in a same company.
AZUR DRONES can take action, whether simultaneously or not, in the field of asset protection (inspection, maintenance), personnel protection (security, civil protection), and environmental protection (gas capture, miscellaneous pollution detection, radioactivity protection in the nuclear industry).
“We are especially proud to present SKEYETECH E2, a genuine game changer in the automatic drone market. A French solution stemming from expertise recognised by our clients and partners, SKEYETECH E2 further positions AZUR DRONES in an operational value creation approach at its clients’ sites. More than just a drone, SKEYETECH E2 is a true shared-use, multi-application platform that meets your clients’ needs for security, industrial operations support, and environmental protection. “ comments Jean-Marc Crépin, AZUR DRONES CEO.

AZUR DRONES has made SKEYETECH E2 part of an overall and particularly differentiating vision of its market: the simultaneous implementation of automatic drone infrastructure and services. Beyond automatic flights and the proposed integration of new applications, SKEYETECH E2 is part of a global offer that AZUR DRONES supplies to each client.
From site studies to operational deployment, and including regulatory studies and the use of specific sensors, AZUR DRONES delivers a perfectly integrated solution that can cover missions varying from on site maintenance and even remote system operation.
