This has been a saga that’s been building up for a couple of weeks now, beginning with accusations from Ukraine (via Blynk co-founder Bolodymyr Shymanskyy) that Russia is exploiting DJI’s AeroScope system in order to track drones within Ukraine in order to identify potential targets while blocking Ukraine from doing the same (or even tracking drones within their own airspace).
DJI’s US spokesperson, Adam Lisberg denied the claims and DJI Support responded via Twitter, stating that there are “malfunctions” with the AeroScope system within Ukraine. Fast forward to the present day and Germany’s largest electronics retailer, MediaMarkt, has now pulled all DJI drones from its website and shelves in Germany and the Netherlands as a result of what Pandaily calls “Security Concerns”.
