DJI has just announced a slew of new Enterprise products - from a powerful new flying platform, a fully remote fleet management system, and an automated docking and recharging station. This integrated solution enables Enterprise drone users like public safety agencies, industrial inspectors, and energy companies to build advanced workflows that fully utilize DJI's groundbreaking technology.
Drones help everyday heroes save lives, preserve physical infrastructure, and protect nature. With the new DJI Matrice 30 drone's outstanding performance, portability, and ease of use, as well as its seamless integration with the DJI FlightHub 2 Fleet Management Cloud Software and DJI Dock, DJI is paving the way for our Enterprise customers to enter the autonomous solutions space, enabling them to fly beyond visual line of sight with the necessary regulatory permissions in place.
The DJI Matrice 30 – A Powerful, Versatile, Portable Commercial Drone
DJI's new Enterprise Matrice 30 is the company's flagship backpack drone. It features a single camera payload with multiple high-performance sensors, a redesigned remote control, and upgraded Pilot 2 software for a better flight experience. Its size makes the M30 ideal for easy transport and quick setup.
DJI M30 gives professionals the capability to fly and perform beyond their immediate surroundings. Integration with DJI FlightHub 2 fleet management software and the DJI Dock for remote and unattended operations bring efficiency and innovation to many industries.
The M30 series has two variants: M30 and M30T. Featuring a 48MP 1/2" CMOS zoom camera, the M30 can zoom 5x-16x optically and 200x digitally. Additionally, the M30 sports 8k photo 4K/30fps video resolution and a laser rangefinder that can give exact position information of objects up to 1,200 meters away. The M30T packs all of the features of the M30, but with the addition of a 640x512 radiometric thermal camera.
Rugged and Weatherproof
With IP55 ingress protection, the M30 can withstand heavy rain and temperatures as low as -20°C and as high as 50°C.
There's also a new first-person pilot camera optimized for low light, built-in redundancy and backup processes, a three-propeller emergency landing system, a Health Management System, and six-way collision avoidance sensors. As a result of the four-antenna OcuSync 3 Enterprise transmission, it has robust redundancy and supports LTE link backup.
Setting it apart from many other commercial drones, the DJI M30 is foldable, lightweight (3.7 kg take-off weight), and highly portable. The new self-heating TB30 battery allows for a 41-minute flight time. Its smart BS30 charging case charges the battery from 20% to 90% in about thirty minutes. M30 also comes with a self-locking system and can be folded with the press of a single button, making it the fastest and easiest to set up of the DJI Enterprise drone series.
Secure and Private User Data Protection
DJI Enterprise end users demand the highest levels of data security and privacy. The M30 features DJI's security-focused Matrice 300 V3 firmware.
With V3, users can do future firmware updates entirely offline.Firmware packages can be downloaded from the DJI website and stored on an external storage device, such as a MicroSD card to update DJI Pilot on the M30.
Local Data Mode disconnects the DJI M30 from the internet, ensuring ALL data stays in the drone.
A security code and AES encryption protect the photos, videos, and flight logs stored on the microSD card.
Quickly create 360° panoramas and sync them to the cloud. On your mission's 2.5D Base Map, shared panoramas and their capture coordinates are displayed for all team members to see.
Cloud Mapping allows users to highlight an area of interest, automatically allowing the DJI M30 to map it in 2D. DJI FlightHub 2 will map these images onto the user's map service provider. After capturing a map, operators can build a mission plan around it.
DJI RC Plus Remote Controller
Pilots will be pleased with the new DJI RC Plus, which has taken the mantle of the flagship DJI Enterprise Remote Controller. The DJI RC Plus has a 7-inch high-definition screen that allows pilots to see more visual information. The DJI RC Plus, like the M30, is IP54 certified and can be used in heavy rain.
The DJI RC Plus has six physical buttons beside the screen. So you can switch between wide angle, zoom, infrared, and FPV views without taking your hands off the control sticks.
The RC screen time is 6 hours. It has an internal and external battery, preventing mission interruption. The DJI RC Plus has microSD card, USB, HDMI, USB type C, and 4G connectivity (where available).
DJI FlightHub 2
DJI FlightHub 2 is fleet management software. Its first version synchronized and coordinated ground teams, drones, payloads, pilots, and all data they collected. FlightHub 2 is now cloud-based. It allows for flight mission management and operational viewing from any web-enabled device, including computers, tablets, and smartphones. Everyone involved in a drone operation can now log into the same mission and see the data collected by the drones and pilots.
This allows users to react quickly to changing situations.
The DJI FlightHub 2 allows users to draw points, lines, or polygons on the map. A pilot can locate a missing person using the DJI M30's laser rangefinder. The DJI FlightHub 2 mission interface will automatically sync these coordinates, allowing the command center and the ground team to generate rescue routes. These maps, models, and inspection data can be uploaded to AWS' cloud and managed remotely.
DJI FlightHub 2 is essential for real-time mission management and communication between the command room and the ground team.
DJI Dock: Autonomous Docking For Remote Flights
The DJI Dock is an autonomous takeoff, landing, and charging station for the DJI M30 Series (Dock Version). It opens up new possibilities for remotely controlled automated missions. After setup, the fully charged M30 drone can fly automatically from the DJI Dock to anywhere within a 7 km radius.
Fast Rotation – Once the drone lands, it will automatically recharge. The fast charging and battery cooling system allows the drone to take off 25 minutes after landing.
Excellent weather adaptability: Its modular durable design allows day and night operations in any weather. The DJI Dock was designed to be durable and low-maintenance. Because the Dock and its internal components are IP67 rated, it is waterproof and dustproof even when open. The DJI Dock's interior is climate-controlled to safely charge M30 batteries in temperatures ranging from -35 to 50 degrees Celsius.
Its connectivity can be expanded via an external 4G dongle port. In the event of a disaster, an internal battery will keep the Dock running and ensure the M30 lands safely.
The DJI Dock weighs 90 kg, is less than 1 square meter in size, and can be transported by elevator. It only needs to be fixed to the ground, turned on, powered, and connected to the internet. Antennas, weather station, ultra-wide-angle surveillance cameras, and a D-RTK base station are all built-in. The integrated design reduces deployment difficulty and simplifies installation.
The DJI Dock is also simple to set up and use. The DJI RC Plus allows complete control over the Dock and M30, missions and scheduling, as well as data collection.
The DJI Dock opens up new fields for automated flight, such as infrastructure inspection, site monitoring, and engineering supervision. The DJI Dock is ready to enable autonomous, unattended, or beyond visual line-of-sight drone operations, with remote supervision via FlightHub 2.
The DJI Zenmuse H20N Hybrid Night Vision Sensor for the M300 RTK
DJI also unveiled the Zenmuse H20N sensor, designed for the DJI M300 RTK drone. The Zenmuse H20N is a revolutionary hybrid sensor solution that combines starlight-grade night vision, hybrid zoom thermal imaging, and a laser rangefinder for the M300 RTK. The ultra-low-illumination starlight-grade night vision camera sets a new standard for search and rescue operations or emergencies requiring immediate recognition. It has a 20x hybrid optical zoom, 640x512 thermal imaging camera, 2x8x optical zoom, and a 1200m laser rangefinder.
Availability & Purchase Info
DJI M30 comes with a controller, batteries, charging box, and the RC Plus remote. You can purchase the DJI M30 and the DJI Zenmuse H20N through DSLRPros. Currently, DJI Dock is being tested with a small group of users and will be available for purchase beginning in Q4 2022. A free testing period will be available from today until October 31, 2022 for all users of FlightHub 2.
