DJI has just updated its lineup of compact drones with the new Mavic 3M model. The product is intended for professional use, especially in agriculture and mapping large green areas.
Among the tasks the product can perform are high-precision aerial surveys, vegetation growth tracking, natural resource surveys, and more. According to DJI, the Mavic 3M will help farmers “improve the quality and efficiency of their production, reduce costs and promote the development of modern agriculture”.
There is even support for special features, such as automatic field detection that identifies abnormalities in crops. In addition, an RTK module is capable of providing high-precision positioning, supporting monitoring of up to 70 hectares of land.
DJI Mavic 3M is packed with sensors
The Mavic 3M has a 2-in-1 camera system, commanded by a 20 MP 4/3-inch CMOS sensor, with a shutter speed of up to 1/2000 s. There is also a set of four 5 MP multispectral cameras for precise monitoring.
In addition, it has a series of omnidirectional sensors, which help in avoiding obstacles. Another sensor captures solar radiation to offset the light from the image data during 2D reconstruction.
According to information from DJI, the Mavic 3M cameras are capable of delivering autonomy of up to 43 minutes, enough to cover 200 hectares in just one charge. 100W charging is available via the base itself, or at 88W on the drone itself.
An O3 video transmission system allows data to be sent in real time, at a maximum distance of up to 15 km — for this purpose, two transmission signals and four reception signals are used.
Even so, it maintains its compact features, weighing 0.95 kg and retractable parts that help with storage in bags or similar compartments.
DJI has yet to reveal marketing details for the Mavic 3M, but it is likely that it will be targeted at specific markets. the brand opened a door of communication by emailin which it should reveal more information over the coming weeks.
