The drone maker DJI announced improvements to its geographic demarcation system for business customers. Professional drone pilots can receive flight unlock codes in reserved locations in just 30 minutes.
This system uses GPS and other satellite signals to prevent gadgets from flying near restricted locations, including airports, nuclear power plants and prisons. These areas are restricted to casual pilots, but now DJI has a global team available 24 hours a day to process solitaires and provide unlocking codes for these locations.
"DJI now handles most requests within 30 minutes, although requests involving unusual circumstances or requiring additional documentation may take longer. By easing the process for authorized pilots to work with drones in restricted areas, DJI is longer. once showing why professional drone operators choose our area platforms for the most important tasks– Michael Perry, DJI Managing Director North America
This release can be requested via the DJI official website, where the user must enter the aircraft information, controls and authorization documents provided by the appropriate authorities. From now on, corporate users can still enter information from multiple aircraft at one time.
DJI first implemented the geographic demarcation feature in 2013. Now this feature is an important tool to help our customers make informed flight decisions, as well as addressing legitimate safety and security situations. This helps prevent unauthorized flights in restricted locations. These improvements illustrate DJI's commitment as an industry leader to continually improve the security features we have implemented for years, while enabling the beneficial use of our technology.– Brendan Schulman, DJI Vice President, Legal and Political Affairs
