The US Division of the Interior has accomplished an independent 15-month evaluation and validation of DJI’s Government Solution.

The information represents a significant and positive step in DJI’s ongoing battle to prove its prospects’ data is secure.

The Chinese manufacturer’s hardware and software program are relied upon by government and trade for all kinds of sensitive ventures. The corporate is also a sector chief in a field plagued by American failures. Unfortunately for DJI, each element has been a recipe for intense scrutiny in recent times.

Government Edition, which was declared in June in yet another step towards decreasing concerned government divisions, has been cleared for takeoff after over 15-months of rigorous evaluation.

The US Division of the Interior confirmed the flight, payload, and data administration assurance efficiency of DJI Matrice 600 Pro and Mavic Pro drones geared up with Government Version firmware and software program.

“The Division of Interior’s report validates DJI’s struggle to develop software program and hardware alternatives that meet the evolving data security requirements of its clients,” stated Mario Rebello, Vice President and Regional Supervisor of North America at DJI.

Government Version’s unique structure ensures that drone information – including pictures and movies captured during flight – can by no means be intentionally or by chance shared with unapproved parties.

Government Version features a permanently enabled Local Data Mode inside a customized DJI Pilot application and the option for government companies and IT departments to carry out firmware evaluations in digital isolation before making use of them to their fleets.

And second, that subsequent Government Version updates “will require additional validation and verification (V&V) testing before permissions can be given for future versions.”
