At Skycatch, we believe in the power of collaboration. We know that powerful visions often inspire strong partnerships that lead to some of the world's most remarkable innovations.

We're thrilled to announce a new relationship with Autodesk, a leader in design and engineering software for the manufacturing, construction, and media & entertainment industries. For more than 30 years, Autodesk has been creating innovative technology that has transformed the AEC industry, and we’re honored to welcome Autodesk as investors in our $25M series B round, and as allies in accelerating breakthrough innovations in the industry.

“UAV technology is rapidly transforming the way people gather information and Skycatch has proven to be among the most influential leaders in the UAV field,” said Dominique Pouliquen, Product Marketing Manager, ReCap and UAV Initiative Coordinator, Autodesk. “We look forward to expanding our collaboration with Skycatch to accelerate the development and adoption of reality capture for our customers across the AEC industries.”

Through this investment and alliance, Autodesk and Skycatch will make it easier for designers, engineers, architects, BIM managers, owners and operators to revolutionize how they capture and utilize aerial data. Using high resolution aerial data collected by Skycatch completely transforms the way industrial sites are surveyed, allowing companies to make smarter data-driven decisions, while saving time and drastically reducing costs, while Autodesk ReCap delivers an easy, cost-effective solution to process the collected data.

Industry professionals using Autodesk software can leverage highly accurate visual intelligence captured and processed by Skycatch's end-to-end UAV technology to provide invaluable insights into their projects and improve overall efficiency and collaboration across their teams.

See how our savvy client, Clayco, harnesses the power of using both Skycatch & Autodesk to survey and manage multiple mega-projects.

Understanding the objectives, challenges, and goals of our clients fuels our ability to produce robust, scalable solutions. We listen. We learn. And, we deliver. Joining forces with Autodesk marks a significant step forward as the commercial UAV market continues to mature, and the industry inevitably evolves toward increased adoption of emerging technology and sophisticated software, like Autodesk BIM 360.

"Aligning our knowledge and experience with Autodesk's expertise will yield greater success for our commercial clients. This partnership validates the position and direction for Skycatch within the market, and we are excited to work with their incredibly talented team to explore opportunities for integration that advance how we build for the future."
