DJI already launched the Spark and Mavic 2 Pro drones. Now, the company has expanded its commercial lineup with launching M2E, the Mavic 2 Enterprise. It is a starter drone for business purposes and doesn’t want the bells and whistles the full-fat Matrice series offers. The M2E is essentially a Mavic 2 Zoom modified for an enterprise. It is equipped with a 12-megapixel camera, stabilized by a 3-axis gimbal for smooth video and images, and 2X optical and 3X digital zoom. DJI has indicated that its imaging hardware can help the M2E to identify and inspect hazardous areas in making it a better fit for emergency services.
The new drone can also be fitted with modular accessories to boost its search and rescue functionalities. Add-ons include a spotlight with a brightness of 2,400 lumens, a loudspeaker for voice recording playback. The new advanced version has a flashing strobe beacon for night-time or low-light missions, or to alert nearby aircraft of its presence. M2E has an additional highlight is DJI’s onboard AirSense tech. It is an integrated receiver in order to alert drone pilots of ADS-B signals from nearby aircraft via the DJI Pilot mobile app in real-time.
The company mentioned it as an extra layer of protection for operators flying it in congested airspace or near complicated operations. It would be more useful in some critical situations, such as wildfire suppression, disaster recovery, and infrastructure monitoring. M2E has the capability to navigate in extreme weather conditions. There’s the new self-healing battery for sub-zero temperatures. The Mavic 2 Enterprise Universal Edition goes on sale today for $1,999.
