Drone safety systems company Parazero recently came to the rescue of a drone pilot, saving hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of payload that was mounted on the commercial drone that almost crashed.
The mission was executed by a commercial drone operator in the homeland security domain.
ParaZero’s drone safety system identified a critical failure in the flight and autonomously deployed a ballistic parachute during the customer’s operations.
While the drone was in the air, ParaZero’s sensors continuously monitored the flight path, looking out for abnormalities.
The safety system identified a critical failure and triggered the flight termination system, shutting down the powers to the rotors. In addition, the patented parachute launcher opened the chute to full canopy in a fraction of a second, bringing the drone and expensive payload safely to the ground and minimising the impact energy.
ParaZero’s CEO, Eden Attias, said: “Our drone safety system proved yet again that it can save the drone and the payload in real-life situations. We are happy we could assist our customer in safeguarding their costly equipment during their operations, resulting in continuous operations.”
