DJI AirSense Adds Aircraft Detection to Consumer Drones

DJI has just announced that it will be building aircraft detection into all of its consumer drones weighing over 250 grams starting in 2020. Called AirSense, the technology will allow drone pilots to be made aware of airplanes and helicopters miles away.

The FAA is requiring that essentially all airplanes and helicopters be equipped with ADS-B transmitters, which broadcasts an aircraft’s position to allow for detection and tracking, starting on January 1st, 2020. Although there’s no requirement for drones to be equipped with ADS-B receivers, DJI says it’s leading the charge in order to “ensure the world’s skies remain safe in the drone era.”

Some of DJI’s industrial drones such as the Matrice already feature AirSense, but the technology is now coming to virtually all of DJI’s popular consumer drones.
