DJI has unveiled the Mavic 2 Enterprise, professional version of its Mavic 2 designed for businesses, governments and educators.
Inside the Mavic 2 Enterprise is a 12-megapixel camera with a three-axis gimbal for stable footage. New 2x optical and 3x digital zoom technology allows professional users to inspect difficult areas.
The drone’s modular design allows users to mount a range of accessories suited to their needs. There’s a new M2E Beacon that features a flashing strobe that can be seen from three miles away.
There’s also an M2E Spotlight which boasts a brightness of 2,400 lumens for work in low-light environments, and an M2E
DJI has also given the Mavic 2 Enterprise 24GB of data storage and password protection for all access to the drone’s functions and stored data. When password protection is enabled, users must enter their password every time they activate the drone or link the remote controller.
A new GPS timestamping feature encodes the time, date, and location of every recorded image, aiding in pilot accountability and ensuring that data captured by the drone can be trusted and used in situations from reviewing critical infrastructure inspections to potential legal proceedings.
In addition, Mavic 2 Enterprise users with heightened data security concerns can use DJI’s Local Data Mode feature which, when activated, will stop the user’s connected mobile device from sending or receiving any data over the internet.
Mavic 2 Enterprise uses DJI’s FOC propulsion motors combined with efficient propellers for quieter and more efficient flight, delivering a maximum flight time of up to 31 minutes and a top speed of 72 kph (45 mph). In addition, a new self-heating battery developed specifically for Mavic 2 Enterprise allows the drone to perform reliably in adverse weather conditions as low as -10 Celsius (14 Fahrenheit).
Mavic 2 Enterprise features DJI’s latest video and data transmission system, Ocusync 2.0, providing a more stable connection between the drone and its remote controller. The system features stronger interference resistance and auto-switching capabilities that support both 2.4 GHz and 5.8 GHz frequency bands with the capability to use different frequencies for uplink and downlink data streams. Ocusync 2.0 delivers such a strong high definition video transmission feed back to the pilot that it could be received up to nearly five miles (eight km) away, though all drone pilots must follow applicable laws about keeping drones within their line of sight.
Mavic 2 Enterprise’s FlightAutonomy system features omnidirectional obstacle sensing for safer flight, incorporating data from eight high-resolution vision sensors and two infrared sensors. Its Advanced Pilot Assistance System (APAS) allows the drone to sense and automatically avoid obstacles in front of and behind it, providing additional safety – especially for new pilots and when flying in areas with obstacles or rugged terrain.
“Drones are incredible tools that can make our rescuers more efficient, simplify some of our tasks and provide affordable protection from the skies. That is a big deal.” Dean Morales, Fire Captain, Mesa Fire & Medical Department. “We are always looking for a better way to serve our community. With the use of drones, lives are going to be saved.”
