The first news out of DJI’s Airworks conference this year is the announcement of the new Mavic 2 Enterprise.
The device is aimed at professionals who use drones in their daily working lives.
DJI has specified that it has primarily focused on businesses, governments, educators and other professionals in this release describing the device as a “reliable everyday tool that helps professionals do their work better.”
The Mavic 2 Enterprise features a foldable design with controls and accessories that have been designed to extend user capability during critical operations like firefighting, emergency response, law enforcement, and infrastructure inspections.
President of DJI, Roger Luo, said: “With the Mavic 2 Enterprise, DJI has created a drone that makes powerful technology accessible to every enterprise and revolutionises how they do their work.”
He added: “Mavic 2 Enterprise is the world’s most capable commercial drone, purpose-built to serve the operational needs of our industry partners as well as companies that are just now preparing to embrace the benefits of drone technology. DJI’s hardware and software set the standard for aerial innovation around the globe, and Mavic 2 Enterprise is the most compact, powerful, reliable and safe tool to help professionals integrate drones into their operations.”
In a bid to improve the ability of drones to identify and inspect dangerous areas, the on-board camera extends the pilot’s sense of sight with a 2x optical and 3x digital zoom capability, a feature designed with the hope of assisting emergency services across the globe.
Its accessories include a spotlight for search and rescue missions in low-light areas, a loudspeaker for providing communication to individuals in remote locations and a beacon which, designed to meet FAA night waiver standards, features a flashing strobe to help with airspace awareness.
The new Mavic 2 Enterprise Universal Edition which includes an aircraft, a remote controller, one battery, all three mountable accessories and a protector case with flight tools, will retail for $1,999 (£1,558).
A ‘Fly More Kit’ which includes two batteries, one battery charging hub, one car charger, one USB connector, one soft case and two propellers is also available to users for $419 (£326).
