Skylarks Drone

Designed and developped in IKP EDEN

Drones & aeronautics Electronics

What’s the project story?

In 2008, Mughilan participated a lot to drone international competitions. 5 years later, he won the NASA System Award for the best drone design. That’s how he decided to create his own company with his team.

His objective was to understand how they could use drones for the better of the society. They found out 3 sectors: utilities, mining and infrastructures, that has challenges of security, productivity and reach.

That’s how they started building specific applications for those industries, first in a garage, then at Starbucks and finally at IKP Eden.

Today, they’ve built 10 to 15 drones, have 15 customers and 20 employees. Thanks to their drones, they gather, analyse and provide to their customers visual datas on mapping, surveillance or topography.

How do they interact with the workshop?

Arrived in September 2015 at IKP Eden, they were the very first users of the makerspace. Thanks to IKP, they’ve been able to build their drones in-house.

What’s next?

They want to become a global company by helping companies with the analysis of their datas.

Their next step is to provide as fast as possible the datas from the drone directly to the CEO of the company. Their priority is to expand in emerging countries struggling with data collection.
