DJI Takes On ‘Countering CCP Drones Act’

“If this Passes, US Operators Would No Longer Be Able to Access New DJI Drones” Chinese drone manufacturer DJI took issue with a recent move in Congress, the “Countering CCP Drones Act”, introduced by Elise Stefanik. The legislation would add DJI’s parent company, Shenzhen Da-Jiang Innovations Sciences and Technologies, as well as any subsidiary or affiliate to the list of banned brands of communications equipment under the Secure and Trusted Communications Networks Act of 2019. That would absolutely kneecap DJI’s presence in the US market, requiring considerable workarounds to even consider sticking around in the market with DJI-manufactured equipment. Stefanik said that there’s a profound national security risk in allowing foreign data collecting systems to operate freely in US comms infrastructure.
