DJI will add ADS-B transponders to all new drones that weigh 250 grams or more (less than one pound).
Its AirSense system picks up location signals broadcast by other aircraft. The addition of ADS-B-the same communication transponding tech used in the airplane and helicopter industry-is part of DJI's Elevating Safety initiative.

"Expanding the availability of AirSense to DJI pilots is a meaningful step forward in safely integrating UAS and reducing conflicts with manned aircraft", said Rune Duke, Senior Director of Airspace and Air Traffic at the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association.
In the past there have been (near) accidents with drones and planes more often.
DJI points out that it's already setting the standard for drone safety, with automatic return-to-home, altitude limits, obstacle avoidance, and the all-important geofencing vital to keeping airports safe.
In DJI's announcement of the technology, it touted its own 37-page report on drone safety and criticised the drone incident data collection of government regulators. Regardless, it's nice to finally see some improvements from DJI, and we hope this becomes the new standard for all drone companies. "There has never been a confirmed collision between a drone and an airplane, but drones have struck low-flying helicopters at least twice. We believe our efforts have helped drones attain their enviable safety record, and we expect our new agenda will further improve safety even as more drones take to the skies", said Brendan Schulman, vice president for policy and legal affiars. DJI has branded its ADS-B detector Air Sense. As of January 1, 2020, the date after which DJI will deploy its new aircraft detection ability, ADS-B Out will be required to fly in the majority of controlled airspace.
