Making History

In May, 2017 the NFL announced that the newly-minted Mercedes-Benz Stadium and the city of Atlanta would be home to the biggest annual sporting event in the world, Super Bowl LIII.

While hosting the Super Bowl for the third time was a huge deal for all Atlantans, for Skyfire CEO, Matt Sloane, the announcement was doubly significant. With most of Skyfire's local public safety clients involved in the security planning and execution for the Big Game, Sloane saw a history-making opportunity to showcase the power of UAS to help public safety professionals gather data and keep the 10-day event secure and safe for the hundreds of thousands of attendees.

Starting in July, 2018, with just 7 months to plan, Sloane embarked on one of the most ambitious projects of Skyfire's 4 year history...securing the Super Bowl.
