"Bad Big Brother" - Segment One
Skydio is best known for “selfie drones.” Now, it's seeking government contracts, as American officials shun the Chinese drone company - DJI.
New regulations and proposed legislation restrict government agencies from buying foreign drones, claiming they are a potential conduit for cyber-attacks. Skydio is happy to fill the void. “We feel a sense of opportunity, and responsibility,” says Adam Bry, Skydio’s CEO and a founder of Google’s drone delivery project. His company recently won a contract with the Drug Enforcement Agency and is vying to become the Army’s standard-issue short-range surveillance drone to help infantry peek over the next hill or look around corners in urban combat.
