I work for a small security consulting company specializing in physical security for electrical and power generation infrastructure in Canada and the US.
We are looking to expand our services to include using a drone to take aerial photographs of facilities like dams and power plants to provide a more detailed risk assessment for clients.
We want to purchase a DJI Air 2S due to its ease of use and price point. However, being a Chinese brand, we are hesitant that clients will deny the usage of this drone due to spyware concerns. (Nobody wants to give the Chinese government 5.4K footage of their sub station)
We are seeing some US government agencies claiming that they are not safe for secret information use, while other independent studies say they are bug free.
Does anyone have a take on this, or perhaps a comparable piece of equipment that isn’t Chinese made?
