DJI today unveiled the Mavic 2 Enterprise, a portable drone with powerful features designed for businesses, governments, educators and other professionals.
The Mavic 2 Enterprise features a compact and foldable design and an array of advanced controls and accessories. It carries a high-resolution, 12-megapixel camera that is stabilized by a three-axis gimbal. The camera extends the pilot's sense of sight with a 2x optical and 3x digital zoom capability.
The drone allows new DJI accessories to be mounted to its body and is operated through the flight control app.
The Mavic 2 Enterprise accessories include:
- M2E Spotlight - A dual spotlight with a brightness of 2,400 lumens aids operators in carrying out missions in dark or low-light areas.
- M2E Speaker - A loudspeaker with a maximum projection of 100 decibels (1-meter distance) lets pilots play up to 10 custom voice recordings on demand, providing a communications channel to nearby individuals.
- M2E Beacon - Designed to meet U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Night Waiver standards, the M2E Beacon features a bright flashing strobe visible three miles away. This helps pilots carry out missions in low-light conditions or at night much more safely, and provides additional airspace awareness for operators of nearby drones and traditional aircraft.
An industry first, Mavic 2 Enterprise incorporates 24 GB of onboard data storage and password protection, creating accountability for all access to the drone's functions and stored data. When Password Protection is enabled, users are required 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 GPS timestamping feature encodes the time, date, and location of every recorded image.
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.
Every Mavic 2 Enterprise comes equipped with DJI's AirSense technology. AirSense uses an integrated receiver to automatically alert drone pilots of ADS-B signals from nearby airplanes and helicopters, providing real-time positioning alerts through the DJI Pilot mobile app.
Mavic 2 Enterprise uses DJI's FOC propulsion motors combined with 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 allows the drone to perform 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.
The US retail price of a 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, is $1,999 USD. 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 USD.
