DJI on March 21 introduced what it describes as an all-in-one solution for professional drone operators that “for the first time” puts a flying platform in the service of a fully remote fleet management system and an autonomous docking and recharging station.
This integrated solution, grouped under the Matrice 30 brand, provides new functionality for enterprise drone users such as public safety agencies, infrastructure inspectors and energy operators. The DJI Dock system is currently being tested and is scheduled for release in the fourth quarter of 2022.
“With the outstanding performance, transportability and ease of use of the DJI Matrice 30 drone and its perfect integration with the DJI FlightHub 2 Fleet Management Cloud Software and DJI Dock, DJI is stepping into the future for our Enterprise customers who will be able to enter the autonomous solutions space, creating possibilities to fly beyond visual line of sight with the appropriate regulatory permissions in place,” said Christina Zhang, Senior Director, Corporate Strategy at DJI.
The new DJI Matrice 30 is DJI Enterprise’s flagship drone that fits in a backpack. It integrates multiple high-performance sensors into one single camera payload, is controlled with an ingenious redesigned remote control and runs on upgraded Pilot 2 software to improve flight experience. The M30 model, explains DJI, is designed to offer power, endurance and capability for rugged professional uses, while its size makes it ideal for easy transportation and fast setup.
The DJI integrates with the new DJI FlightHub 2 fleet management cloud-based software and the DJI Dock for collaboration with remote and unattended operations.
The M30 series comes in two versions, the M30 and the M30T. The M30 model integrates a 48 megapixel 1/2” CMOS sensor zoom camera with 5×~16× optical and 200× digital zoom, a 12 megapixel wide-angle camera, 8k photo 4K/30 fps video resolution, and a laser rangefinder which can give the precise coordinates of objects up to 1,200 meters away. The M30T features an additional 640×512 px radiometric thermal camera.
