DJI addresses incorrect speculation presented during U.S. Senate hearing

DJI, a leader in civilian drones and aerial imaging technology, sent a letter on June 24 to the U.S. Senate Commerce, Science, and Transportation Subcommittee on Security to set the record straight on incorrect claims presented during a hearing last week.

In the letter, DJI responds to hearing witnesses’ incorrect speculation about the company’s data security practices, writing: “The unsubstantiated speculation and inaccurate information presented during [the] Subcommittee hearing will put the entire U.S. drone industry at risk, causing a ripple effect that will stunt economic growth and handcuff public servants who use DJI drones to protect the public and save lives.

“DJI drones do not share flight logs, photos or videos unless the drone pilot deliberately chooses to do so. They do not automatically send flight data to China or anywhere else. They do not automatically transmit photos or videos over the Internet. This data stays solely on the drone and on the pilot’s mobile device. DJI cannot share customer data it never receives.”
