Leading manufacturer DJI has announced that its Matrice M30 and Matrice M350RTK series drones have received crucial certifications from the European Union (EU). Notably, the DJI Mavic 3 model has also maintained its prior certification, solidifying DJI's commitment to safety and compliance.
The Matrice M30 series has achieved class C2 certification under Delegated Regulation 2019/945 EU, which grants the drones the ability to operate in the A2 subcategory of the open category. This classification is particularly relevant for flight operations in areas where maintaining a safe distance from non-involved individuals is challenging. Compliance with this certification requires specialized training in the A2 subcategory, along with the implementation of active geofencing, remote identification, and low-speed operation functions.
Additionally, the Matrice M350RTK has obtained class C3 certification, signifying its geofencing and remote identification capabilities. This certification allows the drone to meet stringent safety and performance standards and permits its operation in areas where non-involved individuals are not expected to be present, including rural areas and controlled industrial environments.
Furthermore, the DJI Mavic 3 drone retains its class C1 certification, which authorizes flight in the A1 subcategory of the open category. This designation enables operation in areas where non-involved individuals may be present, although direct flight over them is prohibited.
With the certification of these three drone models, DJI has achieved comprehensive coverage of all subcategories within the open category, offering operators a diverse range of safe options for various enterprise applications. This milestone reaffirms DJI's dedication to upholding safety standards and underscores the company's commitment to compliance in the ever-evolving drone industry.
