This morning the Mavic 2 Enterprise was officially unveiled! One of the interesting new features available is called DJI AirSense, which enhances safety by providing instant real-time positioning alerts on nearby manned aircraft.

Seems like an awesome feature for all of the Mavic 2 series - is there any indication if the Mavic 2 Pro/Zoom will eventiually receive this feature? If there are no underlying dependencies on special hardware, would love to see this available in a future firmware update!

On page 30 of the M2E manual there is some documentation about AirSense, and it appears to be based on ADS-B transceiver messages - hopefully could be supported withthe prescence of an internet connection for M2P/Z.

What do you guys think?

No, not going to be put into existing Mavic2 series. AirSense requires a dedicated hardware in the aircraft to receive ADS-B signals (1090ES (RTCA DO-260) or UAT (RTCA Do-282) standards).

Hi tylerjhill. Thank you for the inquiry. As of the moment, we still have no information if this feature will be available to the DJI Mavic 2 Pro & to the DJI Mavic 2 Zoom. Please check our official website for the latest updates on all DJI products. Thank you for your support.

I think that thanks to recently passed legislation, that this (or something like it) will be coming soon to all drones...but I'm sure it will be only in newly released drones at first.

Detection like this will be mandatory on new drones for sure as they evolve in line with legislation - good points raised by txt

These new enterprise drones will more than likely require access to NFZ on a regular basis so would require AirSense, I don’t believe we will see this tech in consumer drones, the potential for hobbyists to try flying in NFZ might cause more of a nuisance, I think we will see it in commercial drones Matrice, Inspire and I believe it should be available in phantom RTK .

I think this is a great idea to incorporate such mini-transponders into existing aircraft as an option. It will opening up flying opportunities in places where light aircraft operators want to keep all drones out of the air so that they can have as much access to airspace as possible.

ADS-B is relatively useless for drone fliers currently.  The vast majority of aircraft that are likely to come into conflict with a drone (light aircraft, helicopters, military aircraft etc) dont have ADS-B transponders so won't show up.
Yes the US is trying to get every aircraft fitted but its a long way from happening and the rest of the world it isnt even planned.

If you're really that paranoid you can make your own ADS-B receiver for about $30.

I was thinking along the lines that if we fitted our craft with such, the naysayers would have less reason to object to flying in areas where light aircraft / choppers were there first and want us out.

Transponder rather than receiver would be more appropriate in this setting.

ADS-B is developing to a standard globally and my question why it needs an active HW component.

Why not creating the  ADS-B Information software based and export it to the  server as a virtual transponder (all data on location / height, speed, etc. is available in the App which is running on a smartphone)
Equally the  surrounding air traffic data (receiver function) could get imported via the  ADS-B API.
