DJI CSM Radar
Circular Scanning Millimeter (CSM) Wave Radar for the Matrice 300 RTK
The Circular Scanning Millimeter (CSM) Wave Radar for the Matrice 300 RTK (M300) is an ideal accessory for industrial inspection pilots or anyone operating their M300 in areas where powerlines, guy wires, and/or small tree branches may pose a flight hazard. The CSM radar mounts to the top of the M300 and augments the M300's standard six collision detector sensors.
• 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)
The CSM Radar attaches to the M300 via the upward gimbal point then connects via the PSDK port and is designed to fit within the standard M300 case. The CSM Radar provides obstical avoidance with a detection range of 1.5 to 30 meters (5 to 98 feet), enhancing the standard horizonal vision sensors.
The CSM Radar can be used in place of, or in conjunction with the standard horizonal vision system. Additionally, the CSM Radar can be toggled on/off while in flight. As with the standard horizonal vision system, the obstacle braking distance and warning distances can be adjusted.

Unlike the standard horizonal vision system, the CSM does not rely on visible light and can therefore be used for nighttime operations. The CSM Radar is also IP45 rated.
