Aimed at the Enterprise Market…
World-renowned Chinese drone manufacturer DJI unveiled their new Matrice 200 drone series (M200) this Sunday. It is purpose-built for professional users to perform aerial inspections and collect data and looks to be the next step up from the Inspire 2.
The M200 series’ folding body is similar in looks to the Mavic. It’s designed to be easy to carry and set up, with a weather and water-resistant body. It offers DJI’s first upward-facing gimbal mount, which opens up the undersides of bridges, towers and other structures to inspection. It is compatible with DJI’s X4S and X5S cameras, as well as the high-powered Z30 zoom camera and the XT camera for thermal imaging.
The M200 also has a forward-facing first-person view camera. This allows both the pilot and the camera operator to monitor separate images on dual controllers. It’s safety features include obstacle avoidance sensors (these face forward, up and down) as well as an ADS-B receiver for advisory traffic information from nearby manned aircraft. The M200 platform can fly for up to 35 minutes with a mounted camera because of it’s dual battery feature.
