DJI and Gap Wireless to Demonstrate Enterprise Drones at the Big Drone Show

TORONTO, ONTARIO  – The Big Drone Show attendees and media will get a glimpse into the newest industrial drones from DJI, the world leader in unmanned aerial technology, in partnership with Gap Wireless, a leading distributor of commercial and industrial UAV solutions. Announced earlier this year, DJI’s Matrice 200 series drones are purpose-built for industrial users to perform aerial inspections and collect data – making drone technology an affordable and easy-to-use tool for enterprises that recognize how aerial imaging can transform their operations.

As Canada’s biggest drone showcase, The Big Drone Show will be taking flight in Toronto on September 27th and 28th and will showcase the world’s top talent in Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) technology. The Big Drone Show, sponsored by The Sky Guys, will see more than 20 industries represented, have over 40 speakers from around the world, and will feature a 2-day hackathon where top aerospace institutions will collaborate on a computer vision-based competition.

“We are thrilled that DJI and Gap Wireless will showcase M200 series drones at the Toronto show,” said Adam Sax, President and CEO of The Sky Guys. “The speaker’s lineup is shaping up to be really impressive, and this is very exciting.”

With the potential use for drones continually expanding, the Matrice 200 series drones are designed for professionals that need precise, efficient and safe aerial data collection. The M200 series comes in three versions: the M200; M210; and M210 RTK. Each version is built to meet the needs of various industry applications, spanning critical infrastructure inspections, construction site mapping, energy facility inspections and public safety. Equipped with over 20 internal sensors for redundancy and an IP43 ingress protection rating for adverse environments, the M200 series has unmatched safety and reliability.

In addition to hosting DJI drones, Gap Wireless will also be exhibiting at the Big Drone Show. Gap Wireless is a leading distributor of products and services for the mobile broadband and wireless markets, and has become a premier provider of UAV (drone) solutions for carriers and enterprises in Canada and the U.S., including Canadian distributorship for DJI Enterprise products. The company supplies UAV products and solutions spanning aircraft, cameras & sensors, software, regulatory/training solutions and drone defense.

“DJI is the world’s leader in drones and has a stellar reputation in the industry. We can’t wait to welcome them to Toronto,” stated Sax.
