DJI, the world’s top seller of drones for consumers, has snagged a pair of wins in its effort to court businesses.

SZ DJI Technology Co. said its latest industrial gadget — the Mavic 2 Enterprise — will soon survey power grids for U.S. utility Southern Co., while American Airlines Group Inc. will test the craft for plane inspections. Those are important alliances for the Chinese company, which is grappling with a U.S. government shut-out, a potentially damaging patent lawsuit and rising American tariffs. Privacy is a particularly thorny issue for DJI — one of the few Chinese technology giants that’s made major strides abroad.
