Many enterprises have complex and expensive operations that can be costly and time-consuming to inspect. Inspections can be essential to the efficiency and safety of many industries from oil and gas to infrastructure. Drone technology is now an affordable, easy-to-use tool for enterprises looking to conduct professional aerial inspections and collect data that can optimize their operations, reduce costs, and keep workers safe.
Whether it's a large construction project, technical installation, or property for sale, a drone in the air can help operators keep a close eye on a project's progress, or enable a realtor to garner a unique perspective of a property that will help them stand out from the crowd and attract potential buyers.
With the ability to create 3D maps, orthomosaics, collect elevation data, and gather volumetric measurements, a drone can easily detect potential mistakes before they occur and optimize efficiencies while keeping workers out of harm's way. Now, operators, managers, and developers can stay up-to-date on an operations progress whether they are on site or observing from a remote location.
Farmers have traditionally walked through fields, manually assessing their crops for signs of disease or stress. With drone technology, farmers can now revolutionize the way they inspect their crops and livestock.
Drones in the agriculture industry can assist farmers and operators in monitoring crop conditions, irrigation levels, soil quality, and more. A drone can additionally create 3D maps to help farmers better manage their crops to increase yields and prevent disease. With data collection and imagery from a drone, farmers can now optimize the efficiency of their operations while saving valuable time and resources.
OIL AND GAS
Safe operational standards are critical when it comes to the running of energy operations including nuclear, oil and gas, and more. When it comes to traditional inspection methods, operators are challenged with the task of performing inspections over large and complex facilities while keeping workers safe and out of harm's way.
A drone equipped with a thermal or zoom camera can easily pinpoint defective equipment, to keep energy production running at optimal levels. With a drone, large operations from solar farms to pipelines can be inspected quickly and efficiently from the air to keep facilities running efficiently and safely.
In every emergency response situation, every second counts. Drones can now fly to the rescue to assist police in the collection of data to better analyze crime scenes, or assist search and rescue teams in quickly tracking down victims. With a drone in the air, operators can quickly and efficiently collect detailed data and footage to help emergency response crews cut down on costs, maximize the efficiency of operations, and keep workers safe.
Industries such as mining and transportation are complex and require regular inspections to ensure that operations are safe, and running efficiently. A drone in the air can collect data to enable users to create 3D models, orthomosaics, elevation data, and volumetric measurements. With the information collected by the drone, operators can analyze job sites from beginning to end, or quickly assess results that can make planning easier and much more efficient.
From Game of Thrones to Spectre, Hollywood has placed a spotlight on drone technology, as they see the technologies potential cost and time savings, and ability to easily create innovative and dynamic shots that were previously unavailable with cranes and helicopters.
From music videos, television, documentaries, news stations, and big-budget Hollywood productions, whether you're a large production studio or a small independent film company, now anyone can have the ability to capture stunning aerial shots.
The new Matrice 200 series is an industrial platform that is specifically designed for usage in the commercial sector. In industries including Agriculture, Media, Construction, Public Safety and More, the multi-purpose Matrice 200 can meet the demands of commercial users for any kind of aerial inspection or data collection survey. The Matrice 200 is a powerful, and reliable drone that features a variety of innovative upgrades that make it the perfect platform to complete any professional task from the skies.
The Matrice 200 features an all-new design, with a foldable, closed-shell body that makes it extremely portable. The drone also features a new IP43 classification protection from dust and rain, making it ideal for missions in more extreme weather conditions. Thanks to its dual battery system, the Matrice 200 features an extended flight time if up to 35 minutes and can continue to fly even if one battery fails for added safety. Finally, the M200 uses DJI's groundbreaking Lightbridge technology for a range of up to 7 km.
The Matrice 200 series enables users to conduct inspections including power lines, wind farms, infrastructure and more from a far distance and keep workers out of harm's way. Due to the Matrice 210's ability to have two cameras mounted at the same time, the drone is also the ideal platform for search and rescue missions as both a thermal and visual cameras can be mounted simultaneously.
The Matrice 200 series will come in three versions. The first being the M200, which will be equipped with one downward-facing gimbal mount. The M210 will have the ability to be equipped with multiple payloads. With the M210 users can equip their drone with one single downward facing gimbal mount, two parallel downward-facing mounts, or one upward-facing mount. The M210 will also feature more connection ports to support third-party sensors or accessories. Finally, the M210 RTK will feature D-RTK modules for extremely accurate, centimeter-precision navigation.
The M200 series can accommodate three different payloads including one downward-facing camera, or the two downward facing cameras and one upward facing camera for the M210. WIth a variety of Zenmuse cameras at the user's disposal, operators can customize their Matrice to fit the job at hand. The Zenmuse XT can enable operators to attain extremely sensitive thermal imagery that is ideal for telemetry and analytics. The Zenmuse Z30 enables users to have a camera with a zoom of up to 30x and a digital zoom of 6x.
