No Evidence Of Drone Data Going To DJI Or China

DJI

The verdict will also be a relief for DJI, as the company has continually had to rebuke allegations that its drones are being used to collect and share sensitive data from the USA, branding them incorrect and misleading. The security audit was performed by the cybersecurity team at global consulting firm Booz Allen Hamilton, on behalf of PrecisionHawk’s Unmanned Aerial Intelligence Technology Center of Excellence (UAS COE). As part of the assessment, it examined three specific DJI commercial drone products: The Government Edition Mavic Pro, Government Edition Matrice 600 Pro, and the Mavic 2 Enterprise. In response to the findings, a DJI statement read: “From our perspective, this important finding from an independent, globally recognised leader in cybersecurity indicates that DJI customers have control over the data they collect when using our drones, contradicting reports that data from DJI devices is surreptitiously routed to other parties. Taken together, these efforts will ensure our industry-leading products remain secure and trusted.”. While the audit found no evidence of data transmission to DJI, China, or third-parties, it did identify potential vulnerabilities associated with one or more of the three drone platforms that could be exploited or triggered by a threat source.

DJI Osmo Mobile 3 gets new rival with this cheaper Zhiyun smartphone gimbal

DJI

TechRadar is supported by its audience. When you purchase through links on our site, we may earn an affiliate commission. The DJI Osmo Mobile 3 has long been our favorite smartphone gimbal for shooting smooth videos, but now it has a new, significantly cheaper rival in the form of the Zhiyun Smooth X. Zhiyun already makes some popular camera gimbals in the form of its Crane range, and the Smooth X builds on its beginner-friendly Smooth Q2. One of the DJI Osmo Mobile 3's best features is its smartphone app, with features like ActiveTrack letting it smoothly follow subjects for pro-looking results. And Zhiyun makes similar claims for its Smooth X, stating that its 'intelligent follow' feature can follow objects in real-time, with gesture controls also letting you start a video or take a snap by waving your hand. The flipside of the Smooth X's smaller size (it weighs 246g, compared to the 405g Osmo Mobile 3) is an inferior battery life, with the pocket gimbal lasting for a maximum of 5.5 hours per charge.

Steptoe Secures ITC Win for Autel in Patent Dispute with DJI - sUAS News - The Business of Drones

DJI

Steptoe Secures ITC Win for Autel in Patent Dispute with DJI. On March 2, the chief administrative law judge of the ITC found that SZ DJI Technology Co. Ltd. and seven related entities (together known as “DJI”), the world’s largest maker of consumer drones, violated Section 337 of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended, by importing and selling drones that infringe US Patent No. 9, 260,184 belonging to Autel. As a result, the chief administrative law judge recommended that the infringing products be excluded from importation into the United States, including the Mavic Pro, Mavic Pro Platinum, Mavic 2 Pro, Mavic 2 Zoom, Mavic Air, and Spark. It also granted Autel’s request that DJI post a 9.9% bond during the 60-day presidential review period following the exclusion order. If the chief administrative law judge’s determination is upheld by the full commission, these products could be taken off the US market as early as July.

DJI releases state of the art commercial drone

DJI

Industry insider news for Australia's technology resellers. DJI releases state of the art commercial drone. 11 May 2020 Newsdesk. Drone and aerial imaging specialist DJI has announced the Matrice 300 RTK (M300 RTK) commercial drone platform with the Zenmuse H20 Series hybrid, multi-sensor camera. DJI engineered this all-in-one solution for precise aerial inspections and data collection missions. “With the M300 RTK flying platform and the Zenmuse H20 camera series, we are providing a safer and smarter solution to our enterprise customers,” says DJI corporate strategy director Christina Zhang. “This solution sets an entirely new standard for industrial UAV solutions, significantly enhancing operations across public safety, law enforcement, energy, surveying and mapping as well as critical infrastructure inspections.”. The M300 RTK integrates modern aviation features, AI capabilities, 6 Directional Sensing and Positioning System, a UAV health management system, and a 55 minutes’ flight time with optimal conditions. Alongside AES-256 encryption and an IP45 weather-resistant enclosure, the drone platform comes built-in with an OcuSync Enterprise transmission system, which provides a triple-channel 1080p video transmission signal reaching up to 15 km. The M300 RTK can support up to 3 payloads simultaneously and has a maximum payload capacity of up to 2.7 kg. Combined, the M300 RTK and Zenmuse H20 Series solution offers users two intelligent ways to collect data:. Smart Pin & Track – Intelligent functions that enhance the synchronisation of aerial intelligence in coordinated missions. It includes PinPoint, a function that allows users to mark the subject of interest and instantly share the precise location data to a second operator or if necessary to ground teams via DJI FlightHub; and Smart Track, which allows users to automatically detect and track a moving object, even at extreme distances, while synchronising the subject’s dynamic location in real-time. Smart Inspection – A new set of features developed to optimise routine data collection missions such as power lines, railway and oil and gas inspections. It consists of Live Mission Recording for recording sample automated missions in real-time; AI-Spot Check which enables data collection from exactly the same location every time, greatly improving the accuracy of automated missions. After photos from a sample waypoint inspection mission have been recorded, operators are able to mark the subject of interest. During subsequent automated flight missions, AI algorithms perform a comparison between the marked subject and current live view, correcting the camera orientation accordingly to deliver accurate and consistent results; and Waypoints 2.0 – an improved mission planning system offering up to 65,535 waypoints while supporting an array of consecutive actions, 3rd party payloads, and more. The M300 RTK features a Primary Flight Display (PFD) that merges real-time flight and navigation data into one integrated display. Besides standard telemetry data like altitude and speed, the M300 RTK PFD provides obstacle data for visualising nearby obstacles during flight, enabling pilots to adjust flight trajectory if needed. These enhancements allow users to keep track of the aircraft while further enhancing the pilot’s situational awareness. New to DJI’s commercial drone platforms and exclusive to the M300 RTK, is Advanced Dual Operator Mode – multi-pilot control protocols. When controlled by two pilots it gives each pilot equal access to gain flight control priority, the transfer of which is displayed by a series of icons on the DJI Smart Controller Enterprise. If one pilot becomes compromised or their controller loses battery or connection, the other pilot gains full control over the M300 RTK and its payloads. Additionally, when training new pilots, the teacher/main pilot can safely take over flight control – if and whenever necessary. As with modern-day jetliners, the M300 RTK offers an integrated UAV Health Management System (UHMS) to optimise fleet maintenance. It records the aircraft’s flight data throughout its entire lifecycle, and utilises the drone’s hardware and software systems to understand current aircraft performance and determine when it should be serviced. Taking advantage of this new system, users can get a quick overview of all critical aircraft systems, manage firmware updates across an entire fleet, track pilot hours and review flight missions. To fit the new standards set by the M300 RTK, DJI has unveiled completely new camera payloads that radically improve mission efficiency. The Zenmuse H20 series offers DJI’s Hybrid multi-sensor solution, allowing to capture any kind of images for industrial applications and public safety missions where efficient time management and immediate access to multiple layers of visions are paramount. The H20 Series is IP44 rated which protects enclosures from splashes of water from any direction. The H20 series comes in two versions: The H20, a triple sensor with a 20MP, 23x Hybrid Optical Zoom Camera, a 12MP Wide Camera, and a Laser Range Finder covering distances from 3m-1200m; and the H20T, a quad sensor which adds a 640x512 Radiometric Thermal Camera, allowing operators to see what is invisible to the human eye thanks to high thermal sensitivity a 30 fps video definition. To enable pilots to operate so many sensors at once, the new user interface lets pilots quickly switch between cameras and simplifies the process of zooming in and out by letting pilots preview the zoom FOV on top of the wide-angle or thermal camera footage. The H20 series allows users to smoothly switch between wide, zoom or thermal cameras. High-Res Grid Photo captures in one snap detailed imagery of defined subjects with the help of a custom grid. The images can be stored for later detailed inspection. With One-Click Capture, users can capture videos or photos of up to three cameras simultaneously without having to manually switch between camera views or repeat a mission. Night Scene allows for clearer visibility when lighting conditions are not optimal. © 2020 Techday Ltd, All rights reserved.

Should you buy a DJI Mavic Air 2 without the AirSense alert system?

DJI

ADS-B has also been used in the US, Canada, Europe, Australia and India for years, so it's well-established in most regions that are popular among drone fliers. But does this make AirSense essential? In short, as long as you follow the drone laws and aren't a pro pilot with special exemptions, you really shouldn't need AirSense. As James Abbott, a CAA-approved drone pilot and the writer of our DJI Mavic Air 2 review, told us: "AirSense is a great idea and like most features it doesn’t hurt to have it, but in theory it’s not necessary," he said. Unfortunately, there's not even a rough idea of when AirSense-equipped Mavic Air 2s will arrive outside the US, with DJI telling us: "We are working towards making ADS-B equipped Mavic Air 2 drones available globally and will update our customers and partners when timing has been confirmed." Hence the timing of DJI's introduction of AirSense. As a DJI spokesperson told us: "Rather than just create US versions of new drones in future, we wanted to bring this voluntary safety feature to every DJI user, regardless of location. Despite our best laid plans, supply chain shortages related to the coronavirus pandemic have meant that we couldn’t produce enough Mavic Air 2 units with AirSense technology to satisfy all markets. And so the first ones have gone to the US where ADS-B will do the most good," DJI explained.
