DJI comes with a renewed geofencing system for better protection of airports

Chinese drone maker DJI releases Geospatial Environment Online 2.0 software in 32 European countries. According to the manufacturer, this new version ensures that, for example, airports are better protected against any flying drones.

An important innovation introduced by DJI with version two of the GEO software is the creation of safety zones at airports with a different form. In the original system only circles were used for zones where the drones were not allowed to fly, but in the second version these zones are given the shape of a bow tie. In this way, depending on the expected risks at an airport, the actual runway is covered with an oval, supplemented with strips that screen off the flight paths.

In addition to this innovation, the new software will also support temporary flight restrictions. These can for example be set during major events or natural disasters, so that in these areas there is a temporary no-zone zone. These temporary restrictions are based on data from Eurocontrol.

In addition, the new software ensures that polygon forms are used for the screening of sensitive installations, such as nuclear power plants. In the version of last week, only circles were used here.

According to DJI , the new system ensures that the actual risks are better anticipated and that there is more flexibility in areas where the risks are less severe, such as in parallel with runways.

The new software will be available later this month for owners of recent DJI drones. To implement the new system, the DJI Go 4 app and the firmware of the drones must be updated.
