Last week, DJI introduced the Mavic 3 Enterprise series of drones, aimed primarily at corporate buyers. The novelty is presented in two versions — the basic Mavic 3E and Mavic 3T with a thermal imager.
Both models are equipped with a 12-megapixel telephoto lens with 56x hybrid zoom. In addition, the Mavic 3E has a 20MP wide-angle camera, while the Mavic 3T has a 48MP wide-angle camera and a 640x512 pixel thermal imager.
Although the new drones are compact and weigh less than 1 kg, both of them can be successfully used for highly professional tasks. Mavic 3E is able to significantly improve the quality of surveying and mapping work. The Mavic 3T thermal imager model can also be used for fire detection, search operations and at night.
The Mavic 3 Enterprise Series is one of the smallest industrial drones available. The weight of both models does not exceed 920 g, and the folded dimensions (without propellers) are only 22.1 × 9.6 × 9 cm, which means that the new quadcopters can be easily carried with one hand. The professional models come with a protective case, so the transportation of drones will not be any difficulties.
The wide-angle camera on the base Mavic 3E is a 20-megapixel camera with a 4/3 aspect ratio CMOS sensor and f/2.8‑f/11 aperture. The Mavic 3T’s wide-angle camera has an even higher resolution of 48 megapixels, a ½‑inch CMOS sensor and f/2.8 aperture. Both drones have a 12-megapixel telephoto lens that supports 56x hybrid zoom. Such a powerful zoom allows you to see the smallest details from afar.
The Mavic 3T is additionally equipped with a 640x512 pixel thermal imaging camera. With features such as pinpoint temperature measurement and high temperature alarms, the thermal imager can be indispensable when working at night or in very smoky conditions. On the remote controller (DJI RC Pro Enterprise, see below) in split screen mode, you can monitor the image from the thermal camera and the conventional camera at the same time. This will allow you to quickly determine the exact location of the shooting. In addition, 28x synchronous zoom can be used in split screen mode.
The maximum flight time for DJI Mavic 3 Enterprise drones is 45 minutes. Thus, in just one flight, the operator can explore an area of up to 200 hectares. Such impressive performance is provided by 5000 mAh batteries. They can be charged using a 100W triple battery charger (hub) or directly via the drone (88W).
Both the Mavic 3E and Mavic 3T can cover a distance of 32 km, climb up to 6 km, and reach speeds of up to 54 km/h in normal mode and up to 68 km/h in sport mode. Thanks to OcuSync Enterprise technology, drones can be controlled from a distance of up to 15 km.
Depending on the task at hand, the operator can adjust the braking distance and sensitivity of the six obstacle detection sensors. The drones are also equipped with Advanced RTH technology, which allows you to plan the best route to return to the starting position, and the APAS 5.0 system, which is responsible for automatically avoiding obstacles.
Remote control and accessories
The basic package of professional models includes the new compact DJI RC Pro Enterprise remote control, equipped with 4 antennas, a 5000 mAh battery and a built-in microphone. The remote control screen has a resolution of 1920×1080 pixels and high brightness (1000 cd/m²), so the picture will be clear even in the sun.
Additionally, you can purchase:
- speaker (it can be used, for example, in search and rescue operations);
- RTK module (providing the highest real-time positioning accuracy thanks to support for key global satellite systems — GPS, Galileo, BeiDou and GLONASS);
- D‑RTK 2 mobile station (works with 4G, OcuSync, Wi-Fi and LAN networks and supports connection of 5 remote controls simultaneously).
You can use Mavic 3 Enterprise series quadcopters with a complete set of software:
- DJI Pilot 2 — updated flight interface: with it, operators can remotely control the video broadcast and hardware characteristics;
- DJI FlightHub 2 — cloud-based drone fleet management system: allows you to set complex routes and increase mission efficiency;
- DJI Terra is a mapping program for all stages of work — from flight planning to creating 2D and 3D models;
- DJI Thermal Analysis Tool 3.0 — The tool allows you to analyze, annotate and process images taken by the Mavic 3T model to identify thermal anomalies.
Data between the aircraft and the remote control is transmitted using 256-bit encryption (AES-256). Local Data Mode allows you to block the sending of any data over the Internet.
On the US version of the official DJI website, the Mavic 3E model can be purchased for $3299, the model with the Mavic 3T thermal imager is available for $4999.
