DJI declared two new drones and new energy to support first responders during natural disasters and rescue missions.
With the help of this new drone technology, DJI attempts to strengthen its position as the leading drone technology provider.
More About The Latest Drones
Recently, the company has been promoting its latest fully-integrated multispectral imaging drone, which is considered to be the first of its kind. The purpose of this drone is to help with practical land management in the agricultural industry.
The other drone is called the Agras T16, which is used as a spray drone to apply fertilizers and pesticides to field crops and orchards.
Current & Upcoming Projects
Additionally, the company is also working towards providing state and regional public safety for first responders. For this project, the company is working with pre-selected U.S. based partners.
Initially, DJI was working with public and missionary institutions like:
- The Los Angeles Fire Department
- The Menlo Park Fire Protection District
- Alameda County Sheriff’s Office.
They also worked with the volunteer-based Public Safety Unmanned Response Team from North Texas.
These partnerships are being proceeded even as the U.S. military has formally banned the use of DJI drones due to security concerns since 2017.
Despite there being a whole lot of red flags raised by U.S. defence and intelligence officials, the military still buys DJI drones on a case-by-case basis.
Drone hardware and software ordered through the program will combine DJI’s most advanced technologies.
This includes the DJI Matrice 200 series and Mavic 2 Enterprise series drones, accessories and batteries.
It also involves a robust visual and thermal camera, DJI’s FlightHub drone fleet management software, and DJI AeroScope for airspace management and unauthorized drone disclosure and mitigation.
Besides, DJI will also give technical support, repair services, and on-site workforce.
This will help organizations more efficiently and effectively to use drone technology in times of need.
Lastly, the company launched new service protection plans like the Enterprise Shield Basic Renew.
It offers a discounted price product replacement for a damaged drone within one year of purchase and a Shield Plus Renew plan, which offers limitless product replacements or free repair services within a year.
