The report from the Pentagon examined the DJI Government Edition Mavic Pro and the DJI Government Edition Matrice 600 Pro.
The report examined numerous points of security concern. In 2017 a US Army memo called for a ban on the use of DJI products due to security concerns. Hence, DJI in collaboration with the US Department of Interior (DOI) developed their Government Edition platform. Despite their efforts, DOI was not allowed to use its drone fleet that was powered by DJI.
As the U.S. enters another dangerous wildfire season, the Pentagon report clearing DJI drones for government use could help the Department of Interior to recharge their drone program.
