DJI Launch New Drone Airport NFZ Geofence
DJI Launch New Drone Airport NFZ Geofence system to aid drone flyers comply with proposed changes to UK drone no fly zones.
DJI is improving its geofencing technology with the launch of Geospatial Environment Online (GEO) 2.0 system across Europe. GEO 2.0 will bring state-of-the-art geofencing to a total of 32 European countries.
New Drone Airport Boundary Areas
DJI’s new boundary areas around airport runways are based on the International Civil Aviation Organisation’s Annex 14 standard for airspace safety near runways.
DJI consulted with aviation organisations on ways to enhance geofencing features near airport facilities. DJI’s categorisation of airports is based on airport types, numbers of passengers, operations and other factors, influencing the sensitivity of the airspace around a given location.
Using these aviation parameters, DJI has aligned its geofencing safety feature to broader understandings of airspace and airport risk, in a way that can be deployed in its drones worldwide, regardless of the aviation regulations that are in place, and that are still in the process of development, in many countries.
While DJI’s GEO system provides drone users with information that helps them make smart decisions about where and when to fly safely, each drone operator is still responsible for complying with applicable regulations.
