In a world where drone technology is constantly evolving, regulations and certifications play a crucial role in ensuring safety and performance. This is an area where DJI, a leading drone manufacturer, has demonstrated competence and commitment. Recently, their enterprise drones in the Matrice M30 and Matrice M350RTK series have achieved important certifications from the European Union, while their DJI Mavic 3 model has maintained its recognized certification.
The DJI Matrice M30 series has achieved class C2 certification from the European Union, under Delegated Regulation 2019/945 EU. This distinction enables drones to fly in the A2 subcategory of the open category, which refers to flight operations in areas where a safe distance from non-involved people cannot be maintained. Requirements for this classification include specific training in the A2 subcategory and the use of active geofencing, remote identification and low-speed operation functions.
On the other hand, the Matrice M350RTK has been recognized with class C3 certification. This classification, with outstanding geofencing and remote identification functions, allows the drone to comply with safety and performance standards. Class C3 drones are authorized to fly in areas where the presence of non-involved people is not expected, such as rural areas or controlled industrial environments.
Remember that the DJI Mavic 3 had previously obtained class C1 certification, allowing this drone to fly in the A1 subcategory of the open category. This subcategory allows flights in areas where there may be non-involved people, but direct flight over these people is not allowed.
Thanks to the certification of these three drones, DJI has achieved complete coverage of all subcategories of the open category. This coverage offers operators a diverse and safe range of options for various enterprise applications.
