DJI Mavic 3 Enterprise Series Announced – Two New Models

Market leader DJI has just announced a new series of enterprise-class drones: the DJI Mavic 3 Enterprise Series consists of two new models, both specialized for specific applications in the professional industry. The Mavic 3E targets efficient mapping and surveying missions, while the Mavic 3T addresses the specific needs of aerial operations in firefighting, search and rescue, inspection and night operations.

If you’re getting excited about the release of new drones from DJI right now, you should first sit down and try not to be too disappointed. These new drones are not for recreational purposes, nor are they aimed at filmmakers. They’re meant for use in industry applications where access to specific locations is limited, and a drone could be helpful in that regard.

That’s why these two models are equipped with a variety of different sensors and specialized cameras to handle difficult scenarios in the field. From scouting a forest fire to inspecting power lines and all sorts of other tasks, these drones can be deployed.

The new DJI Mavic 3 Enterprise series consists of two models, the Mavic 3E and the Mavic 3T. As the name suggests, both are based on the proven Mavic 3 platform (article here), but are equipped with different sensors and camera arrays.

As Christina Zhang, Senior Director of Corporate Strategy at DJI, puts it:

The Mavic 3 Enterprise will prove to be an extremely valuable and beneficial tool for environmental and wildlife protection, construction, surveying, energy, public safety and countless other fields.

The Mavic 3E is primarily focused on performing mapping and surveying tasks efficiently. To this end, it features a 20MP wide-angle camera with a 4/3 CMOS sensor with large 3.3μm pixels that, together with the intelligent low-light mode, offer improved performance in low-light conditions. The hybrid zoom camera (up to 56x) has an equivalent focal length of 162mm for 12MP images. A mechanical shutter prevents motion blur and supports fast 0.7-second interval shooting.

The Mavic 3T, on the other hand, is designed to meet the specific needs of aerial operations in firefighting, search and rescue, inspection and night operations. The DJI Mavic 3T features the same telephoto camera as the Mavic 3E, an additional 48-MP camera with a 1/2-inch CMOS sensor, and a thermal imaging camera with a display field of view (DFOV) of 61° and an equivalent focal length of 40 mm with 640 × 512 px resolution.

With the Mavic 3T’s thermal imaging camera, you can take spot and area temperature measurements and set alerts for high temperatures. With tools like color palettes and isotherms, the drone helps professionals find hot spots, for example, during a firefighting operation.

Shared specifications

Both models of the DJI Mavic 3 Enterprise Series share quite a few underlying specifications, so the difference between both models is the set of sensors and cameras deployed.

Both drones sport DJI O3 Enterprise Transmission, which enables the pilot to control them in a range of 15 km and both drones provide a high frame rate live feed at 1080p/30fps. Of course, you need to obey local laws and regulations at all times.

The Mavic 3 Enterprise series features enhanced obstacle detection and navigation systems to help drone pilots find their way. Both drones are also equipped with DJI AirSense, which receives ADS-B signals from conventional aircraft in the area and alerts drone pilots to other nearby air traffic.

The new, improved DJI APAS System 5.0 for obstacle detection without blind spots is supported by six omnidirectional fisheye sensors.

Accessories

In order to further customize the chosen Mavic 3 Enterprise Series drone to the specific need of a given mission, it can be upgraded with one of the following attchements:

  • The DJI RC Pro Enterprise is a professional remote controller with a 1,000-nit high-brightness screen for clear visibility in direct sunlight and a built-in microphone for clear communication.
  • The drone can then be equipped with a Speaker, so pilots can send a message with support for text-to-speech, audio storage and looping to improve search and rescue efficiency.
  • The RTK Module enables surveying professionals to achieve centimeter-level accuracy with support for network RTK, custom network RTK services, and D-RTK 2 Mobile Station.
  • The D-RTK 2 Mobile Station is DJI’s upgraded high-precision GNSS receiver that supports all major global satellite navigation systems, providing real-time differential corrections.

In addition to these hardware additions, the Mavic 3 Enterprise Series also features a variety of useful software to further enhance data collection, mapping, fleet management and flight operations:

  • DJI Pilot 2 is a flight interface designed to improve piloting efficiency and flight safety. Drone and payload controls can be easily accessed. Users can access the drone’s hardware, video live-stream, and photo data.
  • DJI FlightHub 2, a cloud operations management software for drone fleets, allows drone operators to efficiently manage flight operations with route planning and mission management.
  • DJI Terra is the full-featured mapping software for all stages of work, from mission planning to processing of 2D and 3D models.
  • DJI Thermal Analysis Tool 3.0 helps professionals to analyze, annotate and process images captured by the Mavic 3T using DTAT 3.0 to detect temperature abnormalities in their inspections.

Since we’re talking about missions which, most likely, gather sensitive data, it is important to manage this data properly. The Mavic 3 Enterprise Series offers modern security features to protect the integrity of photos, videos, flight logs and other data generated during sensitive flight.

When activated, Local Data Mode will stop the DJI Pilot 2 flight control app from sending or receiving any data over the internet. This provides added security assurances for operators of flights involving critical infrastructure, governmental projects or other sensitive missions. The radio link between the aircraft and remote controller features robust AES-256 encryption.

Pricing and availability

Both drones are available for purchase now. You can get them from DJI directly or from one of the major retailers. Pricing is as follows:

  • The Mavic 3E Standard version: $3,810
  • The DJI Mavic 3T Standard version: $5,780
