Ready for your mission

Superior Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR)

The Osprey with the NextVision Raptor EO-IR sensor delivers a zoom function up to 80X. It provides compact and powerful visual awareness to the Skyfish UAS operator and is the sensor of choice when best performance in the visible and infrared range is required.


Better photos create better models

Photogrammetry | Digital Twins

Using sophisticated algorithms, Skyfish extracts the exact, minute, detailed features from thousands of photos, correlates and triangulates these features, then warps and stitches the photos seamlessly into high fidelity 3D reality models. Skyfish offers a fully integrated online portal (Skyportal) for customers to view the digital twins.

The result is an exact life-like replication, or “digital twin” of the target infrastructure. The 3D model is so detailed you can measure the thickness of steel, measure a cotter pin in a bolt, or the length of a cable to sub-centimeter accuracy inside the model.

Longer battery life

Flies Longer

Up to 60 Minute Flight Times. Osprey can be configured to fly for 40 or 60 minutes, depending on the battery selected. The radio range is 3 to 5 miles.

Geo-tagged cotter pin location web

Geotagging every frame

Best in Class Location Accuracy

The Skyfish platform has amazing location accuracy with an automated geotagging process that is frame synchronous. We inject sub-centimeter data into every still or moving frame (incl. SONY LR1, FPV), and collision avoidance systems. The Osprey also uses an onboard RTK GPS solution with a stand-alone RTK Base Station. The base-station is survey grade, and can act as a relay to increase the range as required.

Electro-optical/infra-red systems

Object Tracking

The NextVision Raptor provides EO/IR object tracking, geolocation, video compression, IP streaming, video recording, and ample resolution to read a license plate.

Fits in a backpack

Easy Portability

At ~14 lb all up weight, portability is built-in and ready for field deployment. The Osprey transports in a backpack or small case for easy mobility.

Talon with QGroundControl on Screen


Ground Remote Control

Skyfish has customized QGroundControl for flight navigation and is integrated with our proprietary remote controller. The intuitive ground control station for the MAVLink protocol features a Samsung tablet and offers an 8″ or 10″ screen for viewing of real-time video feeds and 4 joysticks (2 for navigation, 2 for sensor control).

American Made

Made in the USA and NDAA compliant

Based in Missoula, MT, Skyfish designs drones, battery systems, airborne guidance, and ground stations, which provide real-time video and telemetry feeds from the aircraft — all in house, for the past 10 years. Skyfish is certified Airworthiness Level 3 by U.S. Army DevCom and Green UAS (in process).
