With the release of the Mavic 2 Enterprise Dual, DJI showed that it was able to put the dual imaging capabilities of their larger flight systems with specialized payloads into a compact drone. The Mavic 2 Enterprise Dual is still an exciting and versatile craft but DJI has released a massive upgrade with the Mavic 2 Enterprise Advanced. This new craft was announced at the end of 2020 but is now in stock and available from DSLRPROS.
If you are wondering if the Mavic 2 Enterprise Advanced is worth purchasing over the Mavic 2 Dual, the short answer is very much “yes.” For the longer answer, read on to learn about the M2EA’s capabilities and use cases.
UPGRADED THERMAL IMAGING
With the Mavic 2 Enterprise Dual, DJI showed that they could make an affordable, compact drone with both thermal and visual spectrum capabilities. While the thermal imaging on the Enterprise Dual is impressive for its size and price point, the 160 X 120 resolution is far from enterprise level. This severely limited resolution directed many inspection professionals towards larger crafts with specialized thermal payloads like the Zenmuse H20T or the XT2.
But with the Mavic 2 Enterprise Advanced, DJI has taken a large step towards leveling the playing field between the larger crafts and the compact Mavic 2 Enterprise series. DJI’s Uncooled VOx Microbolometer thermal sensor has 4X the resolution of its predecessor and a smoother video image at 30Hz. The comparison footage makes quite clear just how big of a difference the extra resolution makes, which makes this the first compact craft from DJI that is truly an enterprise level inspection device.
Another exciting new feature of the M2EA’s thermal sensor is that it is Radiometric. This technology allows the craft to measure the temperature being measured on individual pixels. This data can then be recorded and analyzed post flight. This is especially important for solar inspection, energy analysis, and construction inspection, where accurate data collection is paramount.
The Mavic 2 Enterprise Dual and the Mavic 2 Enterprise Zoom both use a 1/2.3 inch CMOS sensor for 12 MP images. It’s impressive for a diverse payload that can fold up and fit in the pocket of a pair of cargo pants. But DJI has shown an unwillingness to rest on their laurels by increasing the visual sensor on the Mavic 2 Enterprise Advanced to a whopping 48 MP. This dramatic increase in resolution gives the M2EA some of the best zoom capabilities on a craft this size. This drone is capable of 4X lossless optical zoom and up to 32X digital zoom. For operations like Powerline inspection where getting too close to an object can be dangerous, the incredible zoom capabilities of the M2EA will be invaluable. Similarly, the ability to zoom in on small details promises to make Search and Rescue and Disaster Response missions easier and more efficient.
When it comes to letting you know why you need the Mavic 2 Enterprise Advanced, we’ve saved the best for last. The Mavic 2 Enterprise Advanced is RTK capable! Real Time Kinematic is a satellite positioning technique that uses GPS and land based signals to accurately measure the location of your craft. With the addition of the RTK module, (included with the DSLRPros Industrial Scout Package) this craft enjoys centimeter level accuracy. When conducting aerial survey for mapping, construction, or inspection, this level of accuracy is essential to mission success and safety. Even if DJI had not improved the imaging systems on this new Mavic 2 Enterprise model, the RTK capability alone would have made this compact craft worth the price.
For professionals working in Industrial Inspection, Survey Mapping, Public Safety, or any other enterprise level industry, the Mavic 2 Enterprise Advanced is a must have compact drone system.
