Dji’s Launched New Mavic Air Drone at Press Event in New York
DJI unveiled the Mavic Air, lighter and more streamlined version of the Mavic Pro drone on January 23, 2018 at press event in New York City
The Mavic Air is designed with compact form factor and folding arms. The Air is not only half the size of the Mavic Pro. It is 41% lighter than the previous version and can fit in pocket easily. During the unveiling event, DJI’s Managing Director Michael Perry pulled three Mavic Airs out of his pockets. The Mavic Air features three new Quickshot modes: Panorama, Boomerang, and Asteroid. In Panorama, the drone autonomously snaps and stitches a series of photos together to create a wide, sweeping shot. It can create a spherical panorama, which folds the shot into a neat-looking globe shape. In Asteroid mode, the drone creates one of these spherical panoramas, then zooms back down to you. The end result is a zoom effect that ends with a selfie.
The new Active Track is more accurate, responsive, and easy to use. Users can track multiple subjects by tapping on subjects to begin tracking them. It features seven-camera vision positioning system, which allows it to map the area around itself to sense and avoid obstacles. Furthermore, standard suite of intelligent flight modes, the Mavic Air will ship with DJI’s new and improved Active track and Quickshot functions.
Mavic Air features 1/2.3 CMOS sensor and 34mm lens, which makes it capable of shooting 13 megapixel stills and 4K video at 30 frames per second. The camera is placed inside 3-axis gimbal that provides stabilization and protect the camera during flight and transport. Mavic Air can also fly faster and longer than the Pro. It tops out at 42.5 miles per hour and can stay airborne for 21 minutes on a single charge. It also has 8GB of internal storage.
According to Airborne Surveillance Market report published by Coherent Market Insights, airborne surveillance system provide high accuracy navigation system. They receive signal from transmitting radar, analyze the signal and transmit the signal to the receiving radar and provide navigation of the target. DJI Mavic Air drone is priced for US$ 799 or US$ 999 for the Combo Pack, which includes additional accessories and attachments.
