DJI Confirms Mavic 2 After Catalog Leaks Photos

Mavic 2 Leak
We weren’t supposed to see leaked photos of the DJI Mavic 2, but now that they’re out we can’t look away! Argos, a print catalog in the UK, is responsible for the leak, advertising two versions of the Mavic 2 in its newest catalog.

Twitter user, Brett Thake, pointed out the pre-released photo in the UK Argos catalog.

If a picture communicates more than words, this full-page ad told us all we needed to know about the Mavic 2. It appears that the release will include two different versions, the Zoom and the Pro. A subsequent leak from DroneDJ also revealed the possibility of a third iteration for the Mavic 2, the Enterprise.

We don’t have to doubt the authenticity of the ad since DJI issued a statement after the catalog released the print advertisement, and confirmed that the Mavic 2 will indeed be announced “at the right time.”

 

This pre-printed catalog was planned before we postponed our See the Bigger Picture event to guarantee our customers high-quality, state-of-the-art technology in line with our standard of innovation. This hasty look alludes to the many exciting features and capabilities that DJI will be announcing at the right time, and we look forward to giving our fans an amazing drone experience as soon as we can.

Leaked Mavic 2 Features

The leaked photos revealed an amazing set of improved features from the previous model, including extended battery life and transmission distance. According to the Argos catalog, both the Mavic 2 Zoom and the Mavic 2 Pro will feature:

  • The ability to fly up to 45mph
  • 31-minute battery life
  • 360-degree collision detection
  • 1080p video transmission
  • Five mile transmission distance
  • Advanced Pilot Assistance Systems
  • Active Track 2.0 to assist in flying the drone

The DJI Mavic 2 Pro comes equipped with a 1-inch CMOS Hasselblad camera where the Zoom model has a 2x zoom lens. The YouTube channel, Tech Drone Media, put out a video highlighting the features of each new Mavic:

Speculation on Official Mavic 2 Release Date

It’s speculated that DJI will make an official announcement and release the Mavic 2 at their upcoming “See the Bigger Picture” event, scheduled for August 23rd at 10am in the NY Metro area. The original event was scheduled to take place on July 18th, but was postponed. DJI stated that the event was postponed so “we can deliver according to our standard of innovation. User experience is our top priority, and we wanted to ensure we can exceed our customers’ expectations for our technology by the time of the event.”

FAA Reauthorization Bill to Reach Senate Floor: Possible Impacts and the Future of Drone Regulations

The U.S. Senate is scheduled to convene, today, August 10, 2018 at 10:30 AM for a pro forma session. On the calendar of business is an aviation policy bill that will reauthorize the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) until fiscal year 2021. The two general orders include S.1405 and H.R. 4. Speculation about when the bill will be discussed has varied, with prior expectations that it would have reached a vote last month in July. However, it has yet to reach the Senate floor.

Senate meets at Capitol Hill to discuss FAA Reauthorization

The Senate is scheduled to meet next at Capitol Hill on Aug. 10 and Aug 15. Image via Flickr.

The House has proposed amendments to the bill, covering a range of issues, including air traffic management of unmanned aircraft, the role of state and local government in UAS regulation, and increased transparency of information on approved sUAS waivers and airspace authorizations.

Current Standing of the S.1405 FAA Reauthorization Act

Here’s where the S.1405 – Federal Aviation Administration Reauthorization Act of 2017 currently stands:

Introduced: 6/22/2017

Last action: 5/9/2018 – Mr. Thune and the Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation addressed the Senate with an amendment in the nature of a substitute – a bill to amend title 49, United State Code, to authorize appropriations for the FAA, and for other purposes.

Current: Placed on the Senate’s Legislative Calendar under “General Orders.” The calendar, composed of several sections, identifies bills and resolutions awaiting Senate floor actions. Most measures are placed on the calendar under the heading “General Orders” in the sequence in which they were added to the calendar. The FAA Reauthorization Act is currently in position 407.

Potential Impact of S.1405 on the Drone Industry

The Senate bill S.1405 deems that the Government Accountability Office shall review privacy issues and concerns associated with the operation of unmanned aircraft (drones) in the national airspace system. It also induces the FAA to develop and deploy a plan to mitigate airspace safety threats posed by drones. Additionally, it would place responsibility for the operation of public drones in the hands of the Department of Transportation (DOT).

FAA Reauthorization Drone Regualtions

Another policy that would be enacted if the bill is passed is the Drone Operator Safety Act. This act will make it a crime to operate a drone that knowingly or recklessly interferes with or disrupts the operation of an aircraft carrying one or more occupants in U.S. airspace.

In whole, the goals (some of which the FAA has already taken action on) of S.1405 regarding UAS are to:

  • Direct the FAA to charter an aviation rulemaking advisory committee to recommend consensus safety standards for UAS, to be accepted by the FAA, to enhance the safety features built into drones and parameters for operators.
  • Enhance privacy by declaring as national policy that UAS should be operated in a manner that protects personal privacy, encouraging commercial UAS users to adopt written privacy policies, and increasing transparency and accountability for government and commercial use of UAS.
  • Promote safety by requiring UAS users to pass an FAA-approved online aeronautical safety test before flying. This would ensure users understand the NAS and avoid manned aircraft. Operators of UAS weighing less than 0.55 pounds could be exempted from the testing requirement.
  • Authorize the establishment of an airspace hazard mitigation program to intercept drones near airports.
  • Foster innovation by authorizing expanded case-by-case exemptions for beyond visual-line-of sight, nighttime operations, and operations over people, as well as for research and development and commercial purposes.
  • Improve UAS test sites, first authorized in 2012, by establishing long-term authorization, more clearly directing research priorities, improving coordination with the FAA, and enhancing protections for proprietary information to encourage engagement with the private sector.
  • Require the DOT to establish a UAS delivery air carrier certificate that would allow for package deliveries by UAS.
  • Directs the FAA to establish operating rules specific to “micro” UAS, which weigh 4.4 pounds or less.
  • Streamline the approval process for the safe operation of UAS at institutions of higher education.

What Happens Next

There are hopes that the bill will reach the Senate floor during their next session. Albeit, if we look back on how these things have proceeded in the past, the bill could continue to get pushed back for weeks.

However, organizations such as the General Aviation Manufacturers Association (GAMA) and the Aerospace Industries Association (AIA) have joined together to call on U.S. Senate leadership to consider the bill as soon as possible.

In a letter to Senate leadership, GAMA and AIA made a collective statement:

With similar legislation already having passed the U.S. House of Representatives, we believe now is the right time for the U.S. Senate to decisively act to improve the FAA certification and regulatory process.

-Eric K. Fanning, President and CEO, AIA/Peter J. Bunce, President and CEO, GAMA

The House passed their version of the bill, H.R. 4 on April 27, 2018. Now, the Senate will need to pass their version, S.1405 before members from both the House and the Senate can meet to settle the differences between the two. After those differences are settled, the House and Senate bills will be reconciled into a single proposal called a Conference Report. The Conference Report is then sent back to both chambers for a vote, and, if it passes, is then sent to the President who will approve it as law or veto it.

You can view a live stream of the Senate floor proceeding on August 10 here, and return to the page to watch future proceedings. We’d also like to hear what you think about the bill and how you feel it may impact the drone industry. Share your thoughts in this thread on our community forum.

Intel Expands “Drones for Good” Efforts with Work to Restore the Great Wall of China

Intel is currently working in partnership with the China Foundation for Cultural Heritage Conservation (CWCHF) to help restore the Jiankou wall, one of the most famous stretches of the Great Wall of China.

The Jiankou wall spans 12 miles and is rapidly decaying.

Due to its location, covering high mountain peaks and steep cliffs, this section of the Great Wall has never received restoration work. In fact, many parts of the Great Wall have never been restored, since work in the treacherous areas where the wall is located is both dangerous and expensive using traditional methods—but by collecting aerial data with drones, Intel will be able to expedite the collection of key information on where restoration efforts should be focused.

intel-great-wall

Using their Falcon 8+ drone, Intel will collect data on the Jiankou wall, which will be stitched together to create detailed 3D models for the CWCHF. Intel will also provide a plan for how to use the data collected to restore the damaged sections of the wall.

Drones are very capable platforms that can be used for novel applications beyond just the commercial roles that they were designed for.

– Anil Nanduri, Head of the Drone Group at Intel

Last year at InterDrone, Intel’s CEO Brian Krzanich used the phrase “data is the new oil” when speaking just before a demo of the Falcon 8+ and Intel’s Insights platform.

In the demo, the Falcon 8+ flew an automated path to survey a fake wall that had been erected for the purposes of the demonstration. The aerial data collected was then analyzed by the Insights platform, and problem areas where work was needed were automatically identified.

great-wall-intel

Intel will use a similar approach with their work on the Great Wall, using an A.I. algorithm to automatically review the thousands of images that will be collected and identify those areas that need attention.

But their insights will go beyond simply identifying structural flaws. According to Intel, by using one of their Xeon processors they will be able to provide guidelines on the precise work that needs to be done to correct the damage found to the wall, down to the exact amount of bricks needed to make a given repair.

Intel plans to capture over 10,000 hi-res aerial images as part of their restoration efforts, which will provide invaluable information for conservation teams and expedite efforts to fix damaged areas of the wall.

Intel’s Drones for Good Efforts

The Great Wall restoration project is part of Intel’s “Tech for Good” initiative, which has included some pretty fascinating projects, including two wildlife conservation projects.

One of these projects was an arctic expedition to track and document polar bears, in which Intel teamed up with renowned wildlife photographer and conservationist Ole Jørgen Liodden.

Given how dangerous they are, and the vast areas they cover, the ideal method for tracking polar bears is from the air. But using a helicopter is loud, invasive, and cost-prohibitive—and this is where Intel’s Falcon 8+ proved helpful for Liodden, who used it throughout the expedition to take pictures and video of polar bears.

The second conservationist project Intel has supported was in using drones to track and document whales—and to help collect their snot.

Project SnotBot is an initiative that uses drones to collect whale blow, also called snot, exhaled when whales surface, which contains vital data for researchers, and Intel teamed up with them to support their research and conservation efforts.

snotbot-intel

Intel helped Project Snotbot by using machine learning technology to improve their data analysis by running algorithms that can identify a particular whale and assess its health in real time, regardless of the presence of complicating factors such as the whale’s unpredictable movements or limited ocean visibility.

Let us know what you think of Intel’s drones for good efforts in this thread on the UAV Coach community forum.
