New drones for autonomous missions - DJI Matrice 3D and Matrice 3TD

New drones DJI Matrice 3D i Matrice 3TD have been tailored specifically to work with DJI Dock 2, are a smaller version of M30T, designed to be outdoors. Devices introduced by DJI offer advanced capabilities for autonomous missions. They are perfect for numerous applications, from precision mapping to inspection and rescue operations. In this article you will learn about the capabilities of the new drones, their parameters, compatibility, and find out the answers to the most frequently asked questions.


Application DJI Matrice 3D/3TD

Matrice 3D is equipped with a tele camera and a wide-angle camera with a mechanical shutter, meeting all the needs for precise mapping at a scale of 1:500. Meanwhile, the Matrice 3TD, equipped with a telephoto lens, wide-angle camera and thermal imaging camera, can capture images in both visible and infrared light. This is especially useful for law enforcement or inspection operations. Both drones are equipped with ambient detection systems and automatic obstacle avoidance functions, which protects them from collisions with trees, buildings and other large obstacles. Thanks to Dock 2's advanced operational capabilities, each drone can be used for operations requiring particular precision.

Drones are equipped with integrated antennas RTK, enables full omnidirectional obstacle detection and automatic obstacle avoidance, the efficiency of each flight. They also feature a maximum flight time of 50 minutes, an operating range of up to 10 km, an IP54 rating to protect against wind and dust, and the ability to recharge for 400 cycles.

High-standard operations:

  • dustproof and waterproof IP54
  • maximum flight time 50 min
  • 6-way obstacle detection system
  • maximum range 10 km
  • integrated module RTK with a positioning accuracy of ± 3 cm
  • 400 battery cycles
  • takeoff in about 45 seconds

Fast charging and quick start

For emergency services that must respond quickly to emergencies, time is of the essence. With advanced image recognition algorithms and real-time positioning (RTK) technology, M3D and M3TD drones can take off from DOCK 2 in as little as 45 seconds. This means that they can be brought out into action in an instant and provide up-to-date data, enabling them to make quick and informed decisions. When the drone lands on the DOCK 2 landing pad, the wireless charging process will allow the battery to charge from 20% to 90% in just 32 minutes, providing power for subsequent operations.

Features of the new DJI M3D and M3TD

After the flight DJI FlightHub 2 creates accurate 3D models based on the collected data, which faithfully represent the area of operations. You can describe, measure and download models. Using precise 3D models, you have the ability to visually edit the flight path from a first-person perspective and view the results of simulated imaging. This will give you intuitive and efficient control, improving the planning and precision of flight routes. Using aI functions, you can crop a specific area in a 3D model, and the drone will automatically compare that area with a restricted area in subsequent automated operations, actively adjusting the camera angle to ensure that the same area is accurately captured during multiple flights. Task Function FlyTo w DJI FlightHub 2 uses these precise 3D models to automatically plan the optimal flight path. Just click the object and the drone will fly to the target through an efficient and safe route. Live flight control via DJI FlightHub 2 or the cloud allows you to control the flight and angle of the gimbal, even if DJI Dock 2 is installed far away, using the keyboard and mouse. When performing automatic flight tasks, the drone uses omnidirectional obstacle detection and automatic obstacle avoidance functions to increase the efficiency of flight tasks.
