Why Drone Harmony’s Planned support of DJI Dock 2 is a Game Changer

December 13, 2023

Drone Harmony is a game changer for the latest release from DJI – the DJI Dock 2. In this blog post, we’ll delve into the reasons why Drone Harmony is the perfect companion for unlocking the full potential of the DJI Dock 2 in mapping and inspection missions.

Expertise Tailored to Industry Needs

Drone Harmony has a rich history of providing advanced planning tools to industries such as mining and construction. Our software support for the DJI Dock 2 is crafted with precision to address the specific challenges faced by industries that demand sophisticated drone operations. The support ensures that users can leverage the full capabilities of the DJI Dock 2 within the familiar and powerful framework of Drone Harmony software.

One key capability is the ability to manage a Full-3D photorealistic digital site within the Drone Harmony platform and interact with it directly in all stages of the remote dock workflow. With remote, beyond visual line of sight (BVLOS) operations being the expected standard for Dock 2, a truly immersive and flexible flight management interface becomes a necessity to ensure both safe and efficient operations.

Operational Excellence with Multi-Site Management

Efficiency is the cornerstone of successful drone operations, and the ability to manage multiple Dock 2 sites is a key feature of Drone Harmony. Drone Harmony features a very flexible and intuitive multi-site management concept enabling one operator to easily manage, schedule and monitor multiple Dock sites. This capability becomes crucial as organizations start scaling their Dock operations.

Flexibility for Standard Drone and Dock Operations

The DJI Dock 2 is targeted at markets and facilities already immersed in drone technology, particularly in the construction sector. Drone Harmony, with its native support for all DJI controllers and Docks, provides the necessary flexibility to seamlessly manage both standard drone and Dock operations in one platform.

Streamlining Workflows with Drone Harmony API

Drone Harmony’s support for the DJI Dock 2 goes beyond basic integration. Captured data in various forms, whether images, videos, or LiDAR, can be seamlessly ingested into Drone Harmony. Leveraging the Drone Harmony API, users can create fully automated workflows, integrating Dock 2 operations into their digital site management processes with ease. Software vendors with data processing capabilities can also leverage the API to connect their workflows.

Command and Control Hub Capabilities

Drone Harmony stands out as a robust command and control hub for Dock 2 operations. Our flexible interfaces uniquely provide capabilities for integrating external sensors, flight safety information, and other digital inspection solutions, ensuring a comprehensive and cohesive operational experience.

Summary

The Dock 2 and the Drone Harmony flight management platform is the perfect combination for safe and efficient dock operations in construction, mining, industrial facilities and more. Drone Harmony is excited to collaborate with DJI and our distribution partners to bring a truly scalable solution for remote operations to market.

The DJI Dock 2 is poised to redefine the landscape of mapping and inspection missions, particularly in challenging environments like construction sites, mining areas, and utility substations. Drone Harmony complements this innovation by seamlessly integrating with the DJI Dock 2, offering enhanced efficiency through its FULL-3D workflow and its multitude of integrations and interfaces. The result is an unprecedented level of control over the enterprise’s digital workflow on physical sites.

About The DJI Dock 2

Weighing just 34 kilograms, in contrast to the 105 kilograms of Dock 1, this version ensures a more straightforward, faster, and cost-efficient deployment of an autonomous drone fleet.

Accompanying the launch of Dock 2 are two new drone models, namely the DJI Matrice 3D and Matrice 3DT. These drones are specifically crafted for survey and inspection applications, boasting an estimated flight range of up to 10 kilometers and a 50-minute battery endurance.

What sets the DJI Dock ecosystem apart is its unique feature of a low-touch maintenance interval of six months (for entry-level usage). This characteristic allows the Dock systems to be installed and operated remotely with a high level of reliability.

In conclusion, the support for the DJI Dock 2 is a testament to our dedication to advancing the field of drone operations. We invite users to explore the enhanced capabilities and efficiencies that our software brings to the DJI Dock 2, marking a significant step forward in the evolution of aerial missions.
