DJI's new drone is designed for being the ideal tool for those who use UAVs as a tool of the trade, rather than for fun and photography. The DJI Mavic 2 Enterprise comes equipped with bolt-on accessories that make it ideal for search operations and reconnaissance.
Of course, drones are already widely used by the emergency services and the security agencies – but this new member of the Mavic family comes tooled up for the job – and at a sensible price.
The modular design of the Enterprise means that it can be fitted with three accessories, which come as part of the basic kit. The M2E Spotlight, is a dual beam torch that gives 2400 lumens of illumination for lowlight or night-time flying. The M2E Speaker allows the drone to play up to ten custom voice recording on demand – to aid communications during lifesaving emergency operations..
Finally the M2E Beacon provides a flashing strobe which is said to be visible three miles away. Designed to meet FAA Night Waiver standards in the USA, this increases safety when using the drone in airspace where there are other drones or aircraft in operation.
The basic specification of the Mavic 2 Enterprise is based on the recently launched Mavic 2 Zoom. It has a 12-megapixel camera, 4K video recording, and is stabilized b a three-axis gimbal. There is a built-in 2x zoom, with an additional 3x digital zoom capability. It has an 8km transmission range and a maximum flight time of 31 minutes.
