The well-known software and drone manufacturer Paladin Drones recently launched EXT, an LTE module for DJI drones. The Paladin EXT integrates directly with DJI Matrice 30 and Matrice 300 drones, allowing them to strengthen the range of an LTE connection. The DJI M30 or DJI M300 is a roughly $11,000 rugged one that offers Advanced AI capabilities, 6 Directional Sensing & Positioning, over 55 minutes of flight time, and more.
With the Paladin EXT module, industries don’t need to purchase new equipment as its DJI drone brings complete comfort. It enhances the ease of use and introduces an unlimited range of C2 links, making DFR more accessible. The product is designed to help Public Safety Agencies and Organizations. Every department that needs DFR can use DJI drones that provide effective and efficient service to the communities.
A new module is a game changer capable of multi-device live video feed, data management, and drone flight within one platform. The main aim is to increase situational awareness, lessens response times, and build technology that saves lives.
Paladin EXT connects to specific compatible DJI drones over a cellular network. Its all-in-one package for the drone as a First Responder (DFR) powered by the LTE platform allows first responders to fly beyond a visual line of sight. It gives a live overhead view of an emergency before it arrives.
Furthermore, LTE is a major factor in how Paladin acquires BVLOS waivers without needing a Visual observer on the rooftop. By leveraging the power of LTE, drones can safely travel beyond a 3-mile radius from their home location. It allows for a 3:1 coverage compared to traditional radio drones. With LTE connection, departments and agencies can eliminate the need for RPICs and larger rooftop fleets and cut down unnecessary costs to cover the same area.
