DJI’s latest Mavic 2 drone is built for search and rescue

The M2E is essentially a Mavic 2 Zoom tweaked for enterprise. It comes equipped with a 12 megapixel camera, stabilized by a three-axis gimbal for “smooth video and images,” and 2x optical and 3x digital zoom. DJI says its imaging hardware can help the M2E “identify and inspect hazardous areas,” making it a good fit for emergency services.

The newbie can also be fitted with modular accessories that further boost its search and rescue capabilities. Add-ons include a spotlight with a brightness of 2,400 lumens, a loudspeaker for voice recording playback (not party jams), and a flashing strobe beacon for night-time or low-light missions (or to alert nearby aircraft of its presence).
