official surveillance

UAS and aerial imaging technology provider DJI is to launch DJI Government Edition, a unique architecture that ensures drone data – including photos and videos captured during flight – never leave the drone and therefore can never be shared with unauthorised parties, including DJI.

DJI has ensured that DJI Government Edition meets the stringent requirements of the government sector for data management, risk mitigation, and enterprise-level data sharing control, and can be used for use cases like agricultural analysis and infrastructure inspections to public land management and disaster response.

DJI developed the solution to meet the needs of the US Department of the Interior Office of Aviation Services, which operated more than 10,000 drone flights in 2018 alone. Government Edition drones were used in over 1,500 of those missions and their security has been validated through multiple audits performed by DOI’s external and internal partners.

“DJI Government Edition allows government agencies to serve the public more efficiently and effectively using the industry’s most widely-adopted drone technology, while maintaining total control over their data,” said Mario Rebello, Vice-President and Regional Manager of North America at DJI. “This is DJI’s most secure drone solution to date because it prevents users from accidentally or even intentionally transferring data off of the drone to other parties. By incorporating these assurances into its architecture, the Government Edition solution meets the rigorous data security expectations of government agencies, and provides them the safety, reliability, and ease of operation that DJI’s products are respected for by commercial drone pilots around the world.”
