The Mavic 3 Enterprise series is the newest Enterprise drone from DJI and is designed for professionals and enterprise users who need a powerful, yet easy-to-use drone solution for their business. The new Mavic 3E and Mavic 3T drones are packed with features that make it an ideal tool for a variety of applications, including aerial photography, mapping, surveying, search and rescue, and more.
At first glance, the new Mavic 3 Enterprise might seem to be similar looking to the Mavic 3. However, there are some major differences designed to elevate this drone to a professional level.
The airframe is equipped with omnidirectional obstacle sensing, and thanks to the built-in wide-angle vision sensors and the advanced pilot assistance system, the aircraft can continuously sense objects in all directions and navigate around them with ease.
Advanced Return To Home
When the advanced return to home feature is enabled, setting the optimal route back to home point can be quickly carried out without the need to traditionally climb to a preset altitude first. This means that the Mavic 3 Enterprise can avoid obstacles and land more smoothly and safely than ever, without the pilot having to worry about the drone automatically raising to a preset altitude and hitting something above the drone. Additionally, all Mavic 3 Enterprise models support the same intelligent flight modes as the previous Enterprise series drones.
The airframe of the Mavic 3 Enterprise has been strengthened so that it can handle higher intensity missions. Additionally, there is now a PSDK port, which can accommodate options such as the official DJI RTK and speaker modules, in addition to PSDK options from third-party manufacturers. Additionally, the new DJI RTK module is smaller and lighter than before.
Unlike the Mavic 2 Enterprise series, which had a beacon light as a modular accessory, the beacon is now integrated into its design so that it does not occupy a port that could be used for other attachments. This means that it is now possible to have even more modular functionality at one time than was previously possible.
Despite all of the new additions, the Mavic 3 Enterprise series is not larger. In fact, the combined weight of this aircraft and its battery is only slightly higher than 900 grams, making it even lighter than its predecessor Mavic 2 Enterprise series.
Mavic 3E vs Mavic 3T
The two models in the Mavic 3 Enterprise series come with different integrated cameras, and it is important to understand which one is for your mission.
The Mavic 3E features both wide-angle as well as zoom visual cameras. The wide-angle camera has a 4/3 CMOS sensor, can record 4K video at 30 frames per second, and has a true 20-megapixel resolution. It also has a mechanical shutter option, which helps prevent rolling shutter effect.
Additionally, the pixel size has been increased to 3.3 microns, which helps optimize data collection in low-light environments with Intelligent Low-Light Mode. The zoom camera features a 1/2 inch CMOS sensor with a resolution of 12 megapixels. The Mavic 3E boasts 56x hybrid zoom, using the wide angle camera's 1-7x digital zoom before switching to the zoom camera for up to 56 times digital Zoom.
In general, the Mavic 3E will be the one to choose if you are looking to do surveying, mapping, or inspections without a thermal camera.
The DJI Mavic 3T is created specifically for aerial use in areas such as firefighting, search and rescue, inspections, and night missions. It boasts a tele camera with the same 48 MP sensor as the Mavic 3E, and a 1/2” CMOS sensor. Additionally, it has a radiometric thermal camera providing 61° DFOV and 640 x 512 px resolution at an equivalent focal length of 40 mm.
The Mavic 3T's thermal camera not only supports point and area temperature measurement, but also high temperature alerts and color palettes. This allows professionals to locate hot spots quickly and make decisions accordingly.
In addition to 28x continuous digital zooming on the Mavic 3T's thermal and zoom cameras, it features a simultaneous split-screen zoom function for simple comparisons.
Both the Mavic 3E and the Mavic 3T have a flight time of 45 minutes and a hover time of 38 minutes without wind. These are some impressive specs for a drone of this size. The Mavic 3 Enterprise series also has the ability to use a 100-watt fast charging adapter, which allows you to charge your drone at a faster rate.
You can bring your battery from 0 to 100% in 70 minutes, and from 0 to 90% in 47 minutes using the 100 watt adapter and charging Hub. This means less time charging and more time flying.
RC Pro Enterprise
The Mavic 3 Enterprise series requires the use of the new RC Pro Enterprise controller, which is included as standard in the box.
The built-in high-brightness screen has 1,000 nits of illumination, which allows for clear visibility even in direct sunlight, as well as an integrated microphone for crystal-clear communication.
This new controller has four built-in antennas- two transmitting and four receiving, that support the DJI O3 Enterprise transmission system, providing a max 15 km range with low interference.
Additionally, there is a built-in mic for the speaker, and the RC battery itself lasts for three hours, with the ability to be charged while in operation. One thing to note regarding the RC Pro Enterprise is that there is no swappable battery.
Enhanced Flight Safety
The Mavic 3 Enterprise series builds on DJI's tradition of placing a priority on safety by incorporating more capable obstacle sensing and navigation systems to help novice drone pilots stay safe. DJI AirSense is a system that picks up ADS-B transmissions from conventional aircraft in the area to alert drone pilots of other air traffic in the area.
The all-new DJI APAS system 5.0 for obstacle sensing is supported by six omnidirectional fish-eye sensors, giving you a complete view of your surroundings without any blind spots.
New Tools For Industry Professionals
The Mavic 3 Enterprise series includes new tools that combine accessories and software, and they are designed specifically for use in professional settings.
Support for network RTK, custom network RTK services, and the D-RTK 2 Mobile Station are included in the RTK Module, which is what makes it possible for surveying professionals to achieve centimeter-level accuracy.
The D-RTK 2 Mobile Station is an upgraded version of DJI's high-precision global navigation satellite system (GNSS) receiver. It is compatible with all of the major global satellite navigation systems and offers real-time differential corrections.
When the Speaker is plugged in, pilots will have the ability to broadcast a message from above, which will improve the efficiency of search and rescue efforts. Additionally, the Speaker will support text-to-speech, audio storage, and looping.
Full Software Suite
The DJI Mavic 3 Enterprise series of drones are at the center of a highly developed and expanding ecosystem of software for drone operations.
