Thought you knew all a drone can do? Think again.
With the announcement of DJI’s newest enterprise level drone, the Mavic 2 Enterprise Advanced, drone capabilities for the energy, infrastructure, and telecom industries have become more viable and affordable than ever.
So let’s break down what makes the M2E:A a game changer.
First and foremost, this drone is not for everyone. It’s no novelty — it’s an advanced machine specifically built for large-scale industrial applications such as thermal energy detection, facade inspection, and much more.
The M2E:A raises the standard for a go-to industrial drone. While the Matrice 300 RKT is the top-of-the-line industrial drone, its capabilities may not be what you need. The Matrice 300 is durable behemoth with all the fixings, but you’ll have to fork out cash for not just the drone, but the specific cameras for whatever job you need.
The M2E:A is different. It covers your bases by being a compact yet powerful and cost-effective alternative to the Matrice line. It comes standard with both thermal and visual cameras, 32x digital zoom, and centimeter-level positioning accuracy to start.
The visual camera sports 48 megapixels, which is a 200% increase over the standard megapixel requirement for most enterprise level inspections. The thermal camera steps up as well, offering a 30Hz frame rate, 640 x 512 resolution, and both spot and area meter measurement capabilities.
But those are just the cameras. The drone itself has DJI’s patented omnidirectional obstacle sensing technology, which means that your investment is protecting itself while it saves you money from the skies.
Drone work comes in all shapes and sizes, but knowing the right drone for the job can be the difference between saving money and wasting it.
This drone in particular is best suited for land surveying, surface and below-surface facade inspections, thermal applications (such as identifying hot-spots and energy leaks, cell tower inspection, pipeline inspection, and general facility inspections on a large scale. It can also thrive in fire departments looking to introduce aerial capabilities to their teams.
But perhaps the most unique feature of the M2E:A is its “Dual Vision” mode, which showcases a direct side-by-side visual from both thermal and visual cameras simultaneously.
This feature will be invaluable to roof inspectors who can now complete both surface and below-surface inspections with the same capture, which offers the industry an unprecedented opportunity to streamline their processes and complete more advanced work in far less time.
But the question isn’t how good the Mavic 2 Enterprise Advanced can be for other businesses.
