The drone light show is part of an episode of “The Secret of Skinwalker Ranch”, a TV series exploring the mysteries of a location with an extensive history of unexplained phenomena, such as UFO sightings, crop circles, and unexplained animal mutilations. The show’s team of scientists and experts utilize leading technology, such as drones, to study and investigate these occurrences. The new episode, “Who’s Your Data,” premiered this past Tuesday on The History Channel.
The episode focused on deploying a swarm of drones to discover aerial anomalies. The show’s team invited Sky Elements Drone Shows to conduct a safer and more thorough scan using Drone Show Technology to collect data and research the anomaly in various areas in the ranch.
The company deployed their drones, normally used for light shows, to disperse over the ranch’s anomaly areas to watch illuminated formations against the night sky, making it easier to spot any changes in the pre-programmed patterns and locate the anomalies. The team from Sky Elements Drone Shows flew the illuminated swarm of 200 drones in a massive grid formation over the anomaly areas, allowing them to monitor the drones’ exact position above the target areas.
“Our participation in the latest episode of “The Secret of Skinwalker Ranch” has been an exciting opportunity for us to showcase the potential of Drone Show Technology from SPH Engineering. Through this collaboration, we were able to conduct a unique and innovative experiment using our drones to investigate the enigmatic anomaly areas on the ranch. The use of our cutting-edge software allowed for a safer and more comprehensive scan of the target areas, providing valuable data and insights to aid in the scientific exploration of Skinwalker Ranch. We believe that the successful integration of drone technology in this experiment highlights the immense potential of this technology in scientific research. We are proud to have been a part of this groundbreaking project with “The Secret of Skinwalker Ranch” team,” said Preston Ward, Sky Elements Drone Shows’ General Counsel and Chief Pilot.
“Sky Elements Drone Shows has once again demonstrated the potential of drone technology in entertainment and scientific research,” said Alex Levandovskiy, head of Drone Show Technology division at SPH Engineering. “We are thrilled to be a part of this unique experiment on The Secret of Skinwalker Ranch, which showcases the capabilities of our Drone Show Technology in supporting cutting-edge research and exploration. This collaboration with Sky Elements Drone Shows is a testament to our commitment to providing comprehensive drone software solutions that can be customized for any occasion or event.”
SPH Engineering’s Drone Show Technology is a comprehensive drone show software solution enabling the creation of complex 3D animations, the real-time synchronization of drones, and management of the entire show from a single interface. It is compatible with a wide variety of drones and lets users create customized shows for any occasion.
