Dominant consumer UAV manufacturer DJI aims at businesses and government agencies with latest offering.
The newest version of DJI’s Mavic 2 introduces a host of features aimed at inspection and search-and-rescue applications to its extremely capable, compact consumer platform.
Included in the package are three modular accessories, a 2400-lumen dual spotlight, flashing strobe and a programmable loudspeaker capable of 100-decibel output.
A self-heating battery allows the Mavic 2 Enterprise to fly in temperatures as low as -10 degrees Celsius.
Enhanced data security features and capacity are included in the Enterprise edition, with 24GB of internal storage, and password protection requiring users to enter their password each time they activate the drone, link the remote controller with the drone, and access the drone’s onboard storage.
A new geolocation and timestamping feature encodes the time, date, and location of every recorded image, and the drone can be operated in local data mode, which prevents the user’s connected mobile device from sending or receiving data over the internet.
These new features are specific to the Enterprise edition, which also retains all of the base features of the Mavic 2 Zoom and Pro, such as 31-minute flight time, shooting 4K footage at up to 100 Mbps, and 2x Optical zoom, and the compact folding capability, and DJI’s latest obstacle avoidance and autonomous flight modes.
This interesting new UAV appears squarely aimed at small businesses and emergency response entities, with its much larger and more robust Matrice 200 offering enhanced capabilities and considerably enhanced cost.
