The Circular Scanning Millimeter-Wave (CSM) Radar enables the Matrice 300 RTK to better sense and avoid smaller obstacles that might be difficult for the vision sensor system to detect, like high-voltage power lines and tree branches. During night operations when the vision system cannot operate, the CSM radar can still help enhance flight safety.
- Obstacle Detection
Detects thin obstacles such as wires, powerlines, and tree branches.
- Enhanced Awareness and Protection
Augments the M300’s standard vision obstacle avoidance sensors and can be used to set the auto-braking and warning system.
- Blind Spot Coverage
It can be used to fill in vision sensor blind spots, offering 360° horizontal/ 60° vertical/45° upper coverage with a detection rage of 1.5-90m.
- Nighttime Missions and Ingress protection
The system works regardless of daylight and similar to the M300, can be flown in light rain (IP 45 rated).
